File Backup
For PC - WD SmartWare Pro

WD SmartWare Pro automatic backup software works quietly in the background to help protect your data using minimal PC resources. Select automatic, continuous backup to instantly create a second copy of your files. Or select the scheduled backup option to back up your files on your schedule.

For Mac - Apple Time Machine compatibility

My Cloud NAS work seamlessly with Apple Time Machine right out of the box for quick and easy backup of all your Mac computers.

RAID 0 - Speed

RAID 0 mode provides disk striping across all drives in the RAID drive group. RAID 0 does not provide data redundancy but does provide the best performance of any RAID levels. RAID 0 breaks up data into smaller segments and stripes the data segments across each drive in the drive group.

RAID 1 - Data protection

Set the system to data protection mode (also known as mirrored mode or RAID 1) and the capacity is divided in half. Half of the capacity is used to store your data and half is used for a duplicate copy. If one drive goes down your data is protected because it's duplicated.

RAID 5 - Data protection and speed (available on 4-bay NAS)

In systems with three or more drives we recommend that you set the system to RAID 5. This gives you the best of both worlds: fast performance by striping data across all drives; data protection by dedicating a quarter of each drive to fault tolerance leaving three quarters of the system capacity available for data storage.

RAID 10 or RAID 1+0 - High reliability with high performance (available on 4-bay NAS)

RAID 10 delivers very high I/O rates by striping RAID 1 (mirrored) segments. This RAID mode is good for business critical database management solutions that require maximum performance and high fault tolerance. A system set to RAID 10 yields half the total capacity of all the drives in the array.

JBOD & spanning

JBOD is the use of one or more drives not in a RAID configuration but managed as separate logical volumes. Spanning is the combination of drives in a linear fashion to create one large logical volume. The advantage of using this mode is that you can add more drive without having to reformat the system.

Business-Ready Features

User management/group management

Proper data and user management is key to a successful business. With My Cloud Business Series, it is easy to grant users access to the NAS, create groups and give access to those groups, and manage the amount of storage users/groups have access to.

Microsoft Active Directory support

Take advantage of centralized account management to reduce overhead and IT spending. Add My Cloud Business Series to your Active Directory (AD) server for simplified and centralized management, as well as easy access for employees with one set of domain accounts. Employees can use a single account to access various services with ease.

Distributed File System (DFS)

Connect My Cloud Business Series NAS to a Microsoft Windows server to organize many distributed SMB file shares into a DFS for improved data availability in the event of failure or heavy workloads.

Volume virtualization using iSCSI targets

Manage storage over long distances and transfer data over LANs, WANs or the Internet by creating a Storage Area Network (SAN). My Cloud Business Series NAS allow you to create and manage iSCSI targets, similar to a local hard drive, that is accessed over a network rather than locally. The iSCSI target is protected by the underlying RAID structure of the My Cloud Business Series NAS.

Jumbo frame support

My Cloud Business Series support jumbo frames up to 9000 bytes. These large IP frames are used to increase performance over supported networks. Increases in data transfer speeds only occur if every device on your network supports jumbo frames.

Link aggregation and failover support

Combine multiple network connections to increase data transfer past a single connection and provide redundancy in the event of a failed connection. This is also known as bonding, and refers to the use of two LAN NICs present in your NAS and two cables connected to your router simultaneously, improving reliability.

iPv6 ready

My Cloud Business Series support iPv6, keeping your NAS up-to-date with the latest Internet Protocol.

UPS support (USB and network)

USB UPS:A supported UPS device that is connected to a My Cloud Business Series NAS via USB cable can detect a power loss and gracefully shut down power.

Network UPS:Network UPS devices can be used when there is a single UPS device and multiple My Cloud Business Series units. One My Cloud Business Series NAS can act as a "Network UPS server" and connect to the UPS device via USB or network (depending on the device). The network UPS server obtains UPS information and relays it to the other "client" Business Series NAS.


Simple Network Management Protocol, a protocol for managing devices on a network, allows My Cloud Business Series NAS to be used in a managed environment. IT administrators who need to monitor multiple network devices, including My Cloud Business Series via SNMP should download the document available here.

Real-time resource monitors

Provide up-to-date information on My Cloud Business Series resources, including CPU percentage, network utilization and RAM usage.

Virtual volumes

Virtual volumes simplify scalability by allowing you to map iSCSI targets on other network storage devices and present them as shares on your My Cloud Business Series device.

Energy-Saving Features
Disk spin-down

Set disk spin-down after as little as 10 minutes, saving runtime energy.


Use WD Quick View to wake My Cloud Business Series NAS without having to physically push a button.

Automatic power recovery

This feature automatically restarts the My Cloud Business Series NAS from an unexpected power-failure shutdown.
