Simple storage for LAN users

Western Digital has released a new product that it claims makes it simple for home and small office users to share and save media files across wired and wireless networks, in just three easy steps.

The firm’s NetCenter network hard drive is designed with the specific saving and sharing of picture, video and music files in mind.

Available in capacities ranging from 160GB up to 320GB, the NetCenter is useable by all users, whether technically minded or not. Users simply plug in the NetCenter network hard drive (via USB), run the installation wizard, and then use WD’s EasyLink software program utility to set up the NetCenter hard drive as a local drive on any PC or Mac computer on their network.

“Western Digital’s NetCenter network hard drives make storage networking simple and easy, offering the highest levels of flexibility to users,” said Hafeez Khawaja, WD’s senior regional director, Middle East, Africa, South Asia. “In just a few simple steps users can start sharing files across a network. As the Middle East region is witnessing a robust growth in the number of small offices and home users, we anticipate a huge demand for these new-generation network hard drives.” The NetCenter drive also lets users create private, password-protected files; back up files from any computer on the network; access files from any computer on the network – at any time; and connect additional external hard drives to increase storage capacity for multiple computers on the network.
