The Seagate 8TB Personal Cloud 2-Bay Home Media Storage allows you to create your very own cloud that is accessible outside the home. Organize all your family’s photos, videos, music and important documents in one secure central location on your home network, and back up not only all your PCs and Macs, but your cloud services as well. Personal Cloud 2-Bay can automatically and continuously back up every PC and Mac computer in the home—wirelessly. Stress less knowing that all your networked computers are backed up, and set your own backup schedule using the included Seagate Dashboard software. For extra protection of your data, Personal Cloud 2-bay comes equipped with two drives. All of your files are simultaneously saved to both drives. That way, if one drive fails, you still have access to all of your files.
Do you use Dropbox or Google Drive? If so, you can easily transfer and back up files stored on your favorite cloud service to Personal Cloud 2-Bay. Free up space in the cloud or simply have local access to all your files you choose. Personal Cloud 2-Bay leads the category in streaming to the top-selling Smart TVs and connected devices. Access your music, movies and docs from computers, game consoles, Smart TVs and other connected devices throughout the home. If you own a Roku Player, Samsung Smart TV or Blu-ray Disc player with Smart Hub (2012 model or later), you can take advantage of the Seagate Media app to enjoy easy content browsing with your remote control. You can also use the Seagate Media app with your smartphone or tablet and cast your content to a Chromecast, LG Smart TV or Roku player when you want to share it on the biggest screen in the home—your TV.
Take the cloud with you, anywhere and everywhere. Personal Cloud 2-Bay lets you manage and access your digital content on the road using a Seagate Access account or the Seagate Media app. Seagate Access allows any user registered to Personal Cloud to have access to private and public files on your drive back home. The Seagate Media app offers a full screen view that allows for quick and easy selection, as well as a visually rich experience that is available for Android and iOS devices, Windows 8/RT computers and tablets, and Amazon Kindle. After downloading the Seagate Media app, you can view your content by type, size, even compatibility, regardless if it is a PDF, Word doc, music, photo or movie file. You can even offload or back up your photos and personal videos on your smartphone or tablet using the Seagate Media app.
