WD now makes routers. For those who are not familiar with Western Digital’s past when they used to make calculators, certain type of processing units and graphic cards, they would probably find it surprising that WD’s first bold move as a storage drive manufacturer is to manufacture streaming players such as WDTV and now routers. WD My Net 900 Central router that I have comes with a 1TB storage drive built inside, obviously to be used as central storage.
Seeing that a lot of companies have been making NAS units and Dual Band routers, one might speculate that someone would make a router with an internal storage to be used for storage.
To introduce the product briefly, WD My N900 Central Dual Band Router sports a 1TB drive inside, with the purpose to provide backup and storing media files and act as a central storage so that you can stream in your devices. WD uses something that they call "FasTrack" technology which basically streams movies smoothly, Lag Free experience during Voice/Video chat and during online gameplay. This is achieved by analysing your usage and prioritizes your broadband bandwidth accordingly.
Also, you can use the unit as your personal cloud storage using WD 2Go Web access. This way, rather than using those Online Cloud Storage you can access your WD Storage router should you require to access data stored in that device via online and since there are iphone/ipad/android device apps for it, you’re good to go.
