Work at Home with Digital Storage Solutions

Technology is critical in helping people stay connected at a time where we are asked to keep social distance. The changes we have faced are challenging for both employees and students trying to stay motivated during this long-term disruption to the everyday routine. With a new year upon us and hope for a brighter future, we’re still encouraged to practice social distancing and so our home set-ups remain the hub for our day-to-day. Offering a refresh to a space with enhanced equipment to help workspaces run efficiently is what Western Digital strives to do. With a world of product solutions to help users get organized, stay connected and maintain productivity. 

Check out these digital storage solutions for organizing your home set-up. 

Upgrade your internal drive

After a long year of using your PC for everything both personal and professional, you probably feel the computer is slow and sluggish. It might seem like the best option is to simply purchase a new laptop and save the headache, but don’t give up on it just yet. An internal storage device can bring it back to its peak performance and then some. The WD Blue™ SN550 NVMe™ SSD can deliver over 4 times the speed of Western Digital’s best SATA SSDs. Whether creating digital art, using CAD software or in post-production, take advantage of this powerful internal drive’s high speeds to do more, faster. Get breakneck sequential read speeds up to 2,600 MB/s* to improve your productivity and everyday workflow no matter what you’re creating.

Backup is vital

Losing a file is a headache you can do without. Automatic backup simplifies backing up – without adding another to-do item to your already hectic day. The My PassportTM drive is trusted, portable storage device that gives you the confidence and freedom to drive forward in life. Available in a range of vibrant colours with a new, stylish design that fits in the palm of your hand, there’s space to store, organize, and share your photos, videos, music, and documents. Perfectly paired with WD Backup™ software and password protection, the My Passport drive helps keep your digital life’s contents safe. With various capacities available, families can select up to 5TB (5000GB)** of storage to back up loads of files on a drive built for durability and long-term reliability.

Optimize your workflow

If your work – or your kids’ class work – requires large files, the lightning-fast speeds of an SSD can give you much-needed time back for a quick workout or coffee break. The My Passport™ SSD delivers read speeds of up to 1050MB/s* and write speeds of up to 1000MB/s*, and capacities of up to 2TB** so you can access your digital world anytime, anywhere because larger files and more content demand next-level performance. Stylishly designed in a range of colors, enclosed in a compact sleek metal design, the device is engineered from the ground up to be a quality drive, inside and out, to deliver reliable performance. The My Passport SSD is ready to use right out of the box and is compatible with PC and Mac. Equipped with a USB 3.2 Gen-2 interface, the My Passport SSD comes with a USB-C™ cable and USB-A adaptor to work with legacy systems.

Create at the speed of life

The newest SanDisk Extreme® Portable SSD leverages Western Digital’s lightning fast NVMe™ technology to dramatically increase transfer speeds to up to 1050MB/s* read and up to 1000MB/s* write speeds in a portable, high-capacity drive that’s perfect for creating amazing content or capturing incredible footage. With an IP55 rating1, it also stands up to rain, splashes, spills, and dust.  And it’s no problem to deliver files when you have up to 2TB (2000GB) of space for a library of content in a pocket-sized design. Enable peace of mind with password protection featuring 256-bit AES hardware encryption2 to help private content remain secure.
