So what is Plex Cloud?
For the first time, you get a full-featured1 Plex Media Server in the… er… cloud. But the important thing is that you no longer need to worry about it! Plex Cloud is always on and accessible. We take care of all the annoying stuff like software updates and power bills. Our Cloud Elves (that’s totally a thing) have even worked a little bit of magic to bring you all the sweet, sweet transcoding capability usually reserved for more powerful home servers (or as the Cloud Elves call them: “closet warmers”).
That covers the server, but what about storage? It’s easy, you simply connect your own Amazon Drive account to store your media.
Plex Cloud is available starting today to a limited number of Plex Pass users via an invite-only beta program. You can sign up to join the beta by clicking here.
Plex Cloud in a nutshell:
● Plex in 60 Seconds: Plex Cloud eliminates the need to run your own local Plex Media Server and manage an always-on computer or NAS. With the simplified setup and no hardware or network challenges, you’ll be streaming quicker than ever!
● Storage with Peace of Mind: Let Amazon worry about nasty stuff like power failure, corruption, and data loss. It turns out they’re pretty good at that stuff!
● Unlimited Storage, Radical Performance: Add as many files as you like to your unlimited Amazon Drive2 and stream anywhere! Forget about your glacial home upload bandwidth and give your data cap some room to breathe. Plex Apps let you quickly view, organize, and share things when you need to, no matter where you are.
● Hang on to your $$$’s: No more costly hardware to buy and maintain! You can store and play as much as you want for just a few bucks a month!3
