My Cloud Home or My Cloud?Which one do you want? If you want to Own your Own Cloud Storage,you must read this post.There is a chance to store all your content in one place, with on-the-go access with My Cloud Home app.Today on #ThankfulThursdays I am sharing a cool way to own your own cloud storage.
When I am busy during the week, I sometimes write on the fly.I am forever looking for gadgets, software, and tech to help make life easier for online entrepreneurship.Guess what?I stumbled upon something to stop the data storage headaches.
A few days back I was chatting with a friend about backing up data and the headache of depleting phone memory.My Gmail said I had used up 13GB of free space.Imagine my shock.Data and Internet usage also needs power.It’s important we avoid wasting resources.I started deleting trash spam folders and cleared up the clutter in my Gmail.
Then as I went through my 500 + blog posts back up in Google docs I was wondering about an affordable safe cloud storage for my blog stuff. I wanted safe easy cost-effective headache free solution with easy accessibility.But the idea of trusting a third party with such stuff scared me.
The Universe was listening.I found this fantastic device, it’s called My Cloud Home.It’s by Western Digital and its available on Amazon.
Tech specs for the My Cloud Home:
- Compatible with Windows 7 or later.
- Max OSX v10.10 or letter.

- 4 TB on Amazon has an amazing offer
- It’s best for storing content from multiple devices

Data overwhelms you.But when you try to save paper you generate loads of electronic data.When you travel the pics and videos soon make your phone zonk out.Last time I was traveling I carried by hard disk and my netbook for transferring travel pics directly to hard disk and keep the phone from hanging up.
But with the My Cloud Home I am in seventh Heaven.It’s an answer to a prayer.I am wishing I get it as a gift or may win some vouchers on Amazon to make it pay for itself.
My Cloud Home vs my Cloud?
Why it’s better than a hard disk
If you drop damage or misplace your hard disc, that’s it.
Your data is gone.I remember a friend telling a story about how his backpack with hard disk fell into the water and he lost all his travel photos when he was doing a cross country trip.It would have saved him the extra load on his back and headache if he had My Cloud Home
Also with data thefts everywhere can you really trust third party apps and systems for storing sensitive and confidential personal and financial data?That’s where the Network attached Storage device is just the thing .
The only problem.You should be able to afford it.
ANAS system includes
- A processor
- Space for hard drive storage
- This is connected to a local area network.
- You can access it from anywhere remotely
My Home Cloud or WD My Cloud?
I am tilting towards the former, but hubby gets a vote too!What I end up buying will be reported here with the complete review.
Data Storage your options
The Remote Cloud storage: access from anywhere.But security and expense issues are real.Think DropBox and its friends, Google Drive etc.
ANAS– safe, accessible moderately expensive
Hard disk: safe, need to be carried.Damage and theft during travel cannot be ruled out.Affordable great data storage.
Pen Drive: Carry it anywhere.Cheap.easy to use and easy to misplace.
Why am I loving the ANAS thing?
ANAS lets you store your data in your own Cloud.Really?Yes thats the promise by the brand.It gives you safety security freedom and accessibility of having and owning your own cloud setup in your own home with a secure wi-fi.This cloud is a friend.It plays by your rules.Plug it in your wifi router at home.
