Riding on the success of its WD My EX4 personal cloud storage system, WD has introduced a more affordable two-bay version – the WD My Cloud EX2. Both personal cloud storage products are built from ground up for creative professionals and prosumers. Prices start from RM1,159 (SRP) for the 4TB version.
