- Advanced Features
My Cloud EX2 comes complete with a full suite of advanced features to power your home or office.
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 EX2 allows you to create and manage iSCSI targets, similar to a local hard disk drive, that is accessed over a network rather than locally. The iSCSI target is protected by the underlying RAID structure of the My Cloud EX2 server.
Jumbo frame support
My Cloud EX2 supports 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.
Supports the latest revision of the Internet Protocol.
UPS support (USB and network)
Provides extra protection from loss of power via USB or network.
USB UPS: A supported UPS device that is connected to My Cloud EX2 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 EX2 units. One My Cloud EX2 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" My Cloud EX2.
Simple Network Management Protocol, a protocol for managing devices on a network, allows My Cloud EX2 to be used in a managed environment. IT administrators who need to monitor multiple network devices, including My Cloud EX2 via SNMP should download the document available here.
Real-time resource monitors
Provide up-to-date information on My Cloud EX2 resources, including CPU percentage, network utilization and RAM usage.
Volume encryption with boot-up password
Prevent unauthorized access to your data by creating a boot-up password for your drives.
Simplifies scalability by allowing you to map iSCSI targets on other network storage devices and present them as shares on your My Cloud EX2 device.
