Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2013
ElephantDrive, the leader in device integrated cloud backup and storage, is proud to announce a new alliance with WD®, a Western Digital company and a global provider of products and services that empower people to create, manage, experience and preserve digital content. The partnership will incorporate a customized version of ElephantDrive's cloud backup for NAS into the newly released WD® My Cloud EX4 network-attached storage (NAS) devices, offering redundant and secure protection to businesses of all sizes across the globe.
This collaboration expands ElephantDrive’s roster of network storage partners, solidifying its position as the preferred solution for direct backup from NAS to cloud. "Our goal is to partner with the leading providers of on-premise storage solutions to make enabling cloud backup, storage, and sync as easy as possible," said Michael Fisher, General Manager of ElephantDrive. "With WD, we’ve found an outstanding partner with global reach and a commitment to deliver the most advanced NAS devices."
With the release of the My Cloud EX4, WD® is re-launching its network storage line. The My Cloud EX4 was designed to compete with the most powerful network storage devices on the market and to provide rock solid data protection. Including cloud backup made sense for offsite redundancy, and the frictionless integration of the embedded ElephantDrive module allows for fast, simple set up.
The announcement is the latest milestone in ElephantDrive’s mission to become the de facto cloud backup solution for NAS devices. What sets ElephantDrive apart in the online storage space is the focus on integrated partnerships and enabling cloud backup, storage, and sync directly from headless devices like NAS. This differentiated emphasis and technology suite has led to a solution set uniquely qualified for delivery alongside network storage devices.
Ultimately, the end users benefit most of all. The ElephantDrive-WD® partnership offers unmatched simplicity, providing one program to store all important data from multiple devices on multiple platforms, and unifying the local and cloud storage experience. The service also offers powerful administrative tools for versioning and archiving data, and the ability to access and share files anytime and anywhere, including on mobile devices. For a limited time new users can log in through their server's administration interface, complete a simple application and receive 100 GB of service free for the first year.
