If you’re like me, you have tons of photos and movies, music and files that you would like to access on the go and share with close friends and family.

You could use a cloud storage service, but with all the reports of database hacking and password thefts, perhaps you don’t feel comfortable putting your treasured memories and personal information onto some remote server over which you have no control.

If that’s the case, a “personal cloud” is a great alternative. With a personal cloud, your files are stored safely at home on a drive and you control who can access them. And, unlike commercial cloud storage services, there are no monthly fees.

All you need to create your own personal cloud is a router, like WD’s My Net N900 HD dual-band router and a network hard drive that connects to your router, like WD’s My Book Live personal cloud storage.

Setup is easy, and your new personal cloud lets you share photos securely with family and friends, by sending links to files and folders. And you can open and view and documents, stream media, and show off photos stored on your personal cloud storage device from computer or with apps for your tablet or smartphone – wherever you are in the world.

You can even upload any photos or videos from your mobile device to your personal cloud.

So if you’re looking for a safe way to store, access and share your important files, and avoid paying monthly fees, a personal cloud is the perfect solution.
