Western Digital My Cloud Mirror Gen 2 Review

Western Digital is well known to the average consumer as a hard drive manufacturer. By extension, it also opens up the network-attached storage (NAS) market to them. In 2014, the company unified their embedded Linux-based offerings under the My Cloud tag. The My Cloud Mirror units targeted home users, while the EX 2-bay and 4-bay units targeted prosumers and small office / home office (SOHO) installations. For business users, the DL series was introduced earlier this year. A few weeks back, Western Digital announced an updated operating system for the My Cloud units – My Cloud OS 3. Along with that, the My Cloud Mirror Gen 2 was also introduced. WD sent us the 4TB version for review. Read on to see how the unit stacks up against the competitors in this space.
