      Product information
      The four bay Western Digital MyCloud EX4100 External NAS Enclosure gives you a multi-volume storage space for high data volumes with reliable backup, operational and convenience features for a more organised computing environment.

      Create a reliable storage space

      Equip your home or small office with a flexible and powerful NAS storage facility. Installation is simple and you'll be able to add up to four drives, expanding along with your requirements. This means you'll be able to install up to 32 TB of space to store your files, multimedia and much more.

      It's physically sturdy with an all-metal enclosure, and offers multiple RAID volumes and a complete set of apps to help you make the most of the drive's features.

      Superior drive management and safer data

      You'll have multiple options to save your data with the WD MyCloud EX4100, which lets you select RAID 0, 1, 5 or 10. Choose between spanning and JBOD modes for further data management options.

      The enclosure includes a powerful dashboard and LCD display to make system control simple. Monitor your drives, manage users and activate energy-saving functions, with email and text alerts to keep you informed.

      Apps and software make things convenient

      The WD MyCloud EX4100 NAS Drive includes dynamic WD My Cloud mobile and desktop apps that let you upload, access and share documents from anywhere.

      Files can be conveniently transferred from public cloud accounts to the EX4100 without requiring a mobile app. Use leading apps such as aMule, Icecast, Joomla!, phpBB, phpMyAdmin and SqueezeCenter to customise the drive. The device also offers advanced serving options like an integrated file server, FTP server, backup server and P2P download server.

      Streaming to multiple devices

      Use your WD MyCloud EX4 External Network Hard Drive to stream photos and videos to connected TVs, media players, gaming consoles and other DLNA/UPnP devices. The enclosure comes with a Twonky 7.2 and a DLNA-certified 1.5 media server plus a My Cloud EX4100 iTunes server for easy streaming from your music library.

      Personalised backup

      You'll be able to safeguard your data by remotely backing up to another My Cloud EX4100 – or using integrated cloud backup or local LAN/WAN backup.

      For PC users, WD SmartWare Pro gives you choices for how, when and where files are backed up for up to ten computers. Mac users can use all the features of Apple Time Machine to protect their data.

      Private cloud

      The WD My Cloud EX4100 NAS Drive lets you store all your content in one safe place on your home or office network, rather than a remote server. You won't be limited by obscure data locations, monthly fees or other limits.

      Enjoy high-speed interaction with your saved files, and attach a compatible USB drive to one of the two USB 3.0 ports to increase your private cloud storage space.

      Advanced hard drive features

      Reduce those energy bills thanks to built-in power saving functions like disk spin-down and scheduled power on/off.

      Other advanced feature include iSCSI target, extensive FTP services, link aggregation and failover support, jumbo frame support, iPv6 ready, UPS support (USB and network), real time resource monitor, volume encryption with boot-up password, SNMP and virtual volumes.

      Find a better way to store your data with the Western Digital MyCloud EX4100 External NAS Enclosure.
