Edit: I did some more digging and found that you cannot backup to a plain MyCloud. That’s pretty annoying… I probably would have invested further into the WD MyCloud architecture but because I can’t, I may look elsewhere now…
I’m really sorry if this has been asked before. It’s hard to search considering the terms catch basically everything…
I currently have a 4TB MyCloud Mirror, which I’ve moved about 1.2TB worth of important files onto. I have a fast fibre-optic connection, as do my family members about 50 miles away. I’d like to setup a remote backup at their house, so I’ve got some DR resiliency in place. Considering this will be more of a secure off-site archive rather than a true DR setup, I don’t really need for the remote server to be a RAID MyCloud Mirror.
Would I be able to buy a cheaper MyCloud and use it as a remote backup?
Also, I assume you can setup the backup job to run automatically at set intervals right? You don’t need to manually trigger it each time?
A. Can you setup multiple remote backups (e.g. you have 1 Primary server, and 2 remote backups in different locations)?
B. Can a remote server back up multiple other servers (e.g. you have 2 servers each with 2TB of storage, and they both back up to a single remote server with 4TB of space)?
