Your own personal cloud:
Unlike public clouds, My Cloud EX4 allows you to keep all your content in one safe place on your home or office network instead of a remote server. No mysterious location of your data. No monthly fees. No limits. Just blazing-fast performance for your high-speed digital life.
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 EX4 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 EX4 server.
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.
Jumbo frame support:
My Cloud EX4 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.
