I’ve hailed the awesomeness of Plex in the past and now the company is working on a new project, Plex Cloud. Plex Cloud is currently in beta and will allow you to access your Plex library without having to have a dedicated PC or NAS powered on all the time. The company has high hopes for the project and you will need both a Plex Pass and Amazon Drive to make this work.
- 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!
Starting today, Plex Cloud, our new, premium offering, will be available to a limited number of interested Plex Pass users who want to participate in the invite-only beta program. If this sounds good, head over and sign up. We’ll be expanding the program over the coming weeks, so if you don’t hear back right away, sit tight!
Plex Cloud looks like a great idea and we’ll see how users react through the beta. If you’re interested in participating in the beta just hit the link below to sign up and get going.
