By any chance does this service comes free with any WD external drives?
There are diskless variants available ig but WD My Cloud does come with WD drives (not sure about the variant and whether its possible to shuck or not). Quick google search brought up this product page for one of the variants. It shows capacity b/w 2-16TB

I would instead suggest purchasing a portable disk and shucking it EDIT: if you have the expertise ofc. Its much cheaper this way usually

Yes it does. It has both options (with and without disk). It accepts user replaceable PC hard disks. You can change the hard disks with one click. It takes two hard disks ata time of capacity up to 8tb

If you just need to store data with a few downloads, backblaze comes out quite cheap. I had been storing my CCTV camera footage from Synology to Backblaze.

How are your upload speeds to backblaze? What region are the servers? (I don't think bb has servers in Asia region)
What is the plan cost?

Have been using it to just store data, my bucket had reached around 100gb and it costed me somewhere around 3-6$ a month, its hosted on a US located server. I had automatic uploads setup from my synology NAS in the night time, I never really had any issues of slow uploads.

Backblaze also has a calculator to calculate your billing, https://www.backblaze.com/b2/cloud-storage-pricing.html#calculator
