Western Digital today announced an upgraded version of the WD My Book Live that can host two internal hard drives.

The new NAS server is called My Book Live Duo and comes in 4TB or 6TB capacities. The server's two internal hard drives can be combined in a RAID 0 configuration for maximum storage space and performance or in a mirror RAID 1 configuration for double data backup. These two RAID setups are a common feature of any dual-volume storage solution.

Like the original My Book Live, the My Book Live Duo supports personal cloud storage, meaning remote users can access data stored on it from anywhere in the world by pointing a browser to www.wd2go.com. It comes with WD mobile apps for iOS-based devices and Android-based mobile devices.

The My Book Live Duo features a built-in DLNA-compliant media server that can broadcast digital content to a networked media player, such as a WD TV Live player, a Blu-ray player, a PlayStation, or an Xbox 360.

The new My Book Live Duo is compatible both Windows (XP or later) and Mac OS (10.5 or later) and is available now, costing around $400 for the 4TB version or $500 for the 6TB version.
