As the product name indicates, its mirrored data protection (Mirror Mode, RAID1) is the mặc định setting. This means that its capacity is divided in half, with one half storing user data và the other half used as a duplicate copy for backup purposes in sự kiện that one drive sầu fails. This may be a bit of a confusing pitch to lớn consumers, as it is marketed as a 4TB, 6TB, and 8TB NASwhen the recommended RAID setting only allows users get access lớn half of the capacity. That’s not khổng lồ say the RAID1 setting isn’t a good idea, because it is; however, the sản phẩm marketingjust may be a bit bewildering lớn the average consumer.

The My Cloud Mirror works concurrently with all kinds of platforms including Mac OS, Windows, iOS và Android with điện thoại apps. In addition, it allows users to lớn transfer files between their personal Cloud, Dropbox, & virtually any other public cloud accounts with WD's không lấy phí My Cloud mobile tiện ích. The My Cloud Mirror also allows users lớn attach a compatible USB 3.0 hard drive directly to one of the two USB ports lớn expvà their storage capathành phố.

The WD My Cloud Mirror goes for$390, $450, và $550 for the 4TB, 6TB, and 8TB, respectively, và is backed by a two-year warranty. Our đánh giá is of the 4TB capađô thị.

Design & Build

The WD My Cloud Mirror looks virtually identical to lớn its single bay My Cloud (và My Book)brethren, the only difference being that it is about twice as thiông xã. Like all WD storage products, the My Cloud Mirror is a very nice looking device with its sleek and shiny whiteplastic enclosure. Not only does it look good, we also found it to lớn be very quiet as well as sturdy; especially with the rubber padding on each of the bottom corners.

Located on the front panel’s grey plate are the LEDs: two drive sầu status indicators as well as the power LED. The WD biểu tượng logo and product name are also located on the front panel. The top of the device can be opened to expose the two drives, although the drives cannot be easily removed. The back panel includes two USB 3.0 ports, an Ethernet port, rephối button, và a power port. The My Cloud Mirror also supports a standard Kensington security cable.

The drives inside the Mirror are easily accessible, should the time come where a drive needs to be replaced or otherwise removed for some reason.The My Cloud Mirror comes with an Ethernet cable, AC power adapter, and a Quick Install Guide.

Usability

Like the other My Cloud units, theMirror is very simple khổng lồ mix up. Simply connect the Ethernet cable lớn the Ethernet port located on the back of the device and connect the other end of the Ethernet cable directly inlớn a router or network switch port. Connect the power adapter, & it should automatically turn on và the blue LED on the front panel should eventually turn solid blue. You’re now ready lớn go.

The thiết lập process is straightforward & simple, the configuration applicationyields a status screen upon logging in that shows capacity, users, shares, and other administrative sầu information at-a-glance.

Shares canbe accessed & managed via the "Shares" tab, with asimple adding function. The user can see existing shares on the left side of the screen.

*

The status of the disks can also be easily checked via the "Storage" tab. This is also where RAIDmanagement occurs.

Other NAS units may be more powerful or have sầu deeper libraries of third tiệc ngọt tools, but from a pure usability standpoint, it goes no easier than My Cloud.

Enterprise Synthetic Workload Analysis

We tested both SMB and iSCSI performance using a RAID1 configuration across the includedtwo WD Red 2TB HDDs.

Our standard bommobile.vns Enterprise Test Lab regimen runs the device through its paces with a battery of varying performance levels & throughput activity workloads. For the WD My Cloud EX2, the following profiles were utilized khổng lồ compare performance between different networking standard protocols (SMB & iSCSI):

4K 100% Read/100% Write throughput8K 100% Read/100% Write throughput8K 70% Read/30% Write throughput128K 100% Read/100% Write throughput

Our first testing benchmark measures 4K performance at 100% read/100% write activity across a wide range of thread/queue combinations (from 2/2 all the way lớn 16/16). In this category, the My Cloud Mirror posted 114IOPS read and 308IOPS write at 16T/16Q.

In our benchmark section that compares 8k transfers sequential throughput, the My Cloud Mirror showed results of 4,400IOPS readvà 2,600IOPS write, while the mixed protệp tin of 70% read/30%write hit a peak throughput of 128IOPS at 16T/16Q.

Our final testing benchmark looks at our 128K transfer chạy thử, which demonstrates the highest sequential transfer speed available. This workload showed the WD My Cloud Mirror boasting an average of 112MB/s read, và 71MB/s write.

Conclusion

The WD My Cloud Mirror is an easy-to-use NAS designed specifically for mainstream consumers looking for data protection as well as the ability khổng lồ access this data from anywhere, on any device with an Internet connection. Since the Mirror default setting is RAID1 (or Mirror Mode), getting the Mirror up và running on your network only takes only a few minutes and requires no detailed configuration. In addition, the Smartphone apps andinterfaceof the website configuration application arevery user-friendly.

As far as performance goes, it posted results on par for its class, though generally it was a bit slower in the read column than similarlyclassed Cloud deviceslike the DS214se andWD’s ownMy Cloud EX2.However, it showed faster write results than the otherdevices.For example,the Mirror posted114IOPS read & 308IOPS write respectively at 16T/16Qin our random 4k 100%workload. Forcomparison, we measured the IOPS of theDS214se at 307 read và 215 write in the iSCSI configuration and 86 read and 273 write in the SMB configuration. For the EX2, we sawread & write speedsof 139IOPS và 292IOPS, respectively, foriSCSI& 114IOPS & 340IOPS, respectively, forSMB.

The WD My Cloud Mirror is competitively priced, going for roughly $350 with x2 WD 2TB drives under the hood. The two-bay My Cloud EX2 goes for approximately $200 for the diskless model, while the 4TB unit is priced at $370. TheDS214se carriesa street price of $159 for the diskless unit.
