New ‘My Book Duo' offers 20TB to keep up with today's growing content libraries 

Dubai, U.A.E., August 23, 2017:  Western Digital Corporation, (NASDAQ: WDC), a global data storage technology and solutions leader, today unveiled My Book® Duo storage system designed to give both consumers and professionals the capacity they need to keep up with their expanding digital content libraries and the performance to maintain pace with the speed of today's small business landscape. With this extreme capacity and fast content transfer speeds, the new desktop RAID storage system has the capability to back up colossal amounts of photos, videos, music and important documents in one place while also providing users with complete control of their content. 

“Both at home and in the office, people are creating and amassing huge volumes of data, and need high capacity, high speed solutions to easily and confidently move and store that data in a single location,” Sven Rathjen, vice president of product marketing, Client Solutions, Western Digital. “We see it within new content creation segments such as the drone market and with enthusiasts, as well as professionals, producing and editing massive, high-quality photo and video files. There has never been more of a need for a simple-to-use, massive capacity desktop storage solution such as My Book Duo for these content creators to keep pace with their growing storage demands.” 

Whether set up as a home back up system, or for a small business, the My Book Duo storage system can quickly and reliably back up an enormous amount of data in any environment.  It comes with RAID-optimized WD Red™ hard drives inside to deliver high-speeds of up to 360 MB/s sequential reads1, and RAID-optimized firmware which is perfect for two-disk array systems with auto management of drive operations to help ensure read/write cycle data integrity.

“As a creative professional, I constantly have several photo and video projects in the works. With the way files sizes are increasing and demand for higher-quality content is growing, I need a reliable, massive storage system that I can quickly and easily access while managing my business. The My Book Duo combines the speed, capacity and features I need to help keep my content in control and securely backed up,” said Trevor Traynor, Director, Photographer, and Producer. 

The My Book Duo storage system also features a USB Type-C™ port with all cables included so it's universally compatible (supports USB 3.1 Gen 1/3.0/2.0) right out of the box and offers high-speed connectivity. The storage system also has two additional USB Type-A hub ports to allow for additional accessories, including drones, action cameras, card readers, keyboards, mice, USB drives or phone syncing and charging.

The My Book Duo storage system delivers extreme capacity and file transfer speeds. Available in 20TB, 16TB, 12TB, 8TB, 6TB and 4TB capacities2, the storage system also comes with password protection and 256-bit AES hardware encryption with WD Security™ software built in to help keep private content secure.
