Multiple RAID options
Armed with multiple RAID options, you have the power to customize the system with the configuration that works best for you. Choose RAID 0 for enhanced system performance; RAID 1 for mirrored data protection; RAID 5 for data protection and best capacity; or RAID 10 for fast performance and ultimate data reliability. Other options include JBOD and spanning.
RAID Roaming allows you to keep your RAID array intact when you move drives from one My Cloud EX4100 device to another. RAID Migration lets you change your RAID configuration and expand storage without losing content.
Advanced data security
256 AES volume encryption provides additional protection for your valuable photos, videos, music and files.
With this optional feature, deleted files are not erased completely from the NAS, but moved to a special folder and can be retrieved, adding a second level of defense against accidental data deletion.
