Use Plex Cloud to backup your home media server [VIDEO]


Plex has introduced a new way to backup your home media server with the help of Amazon Drive and the newly announced Plex Cloud. This allows you to load up all of your favorite content from your computers and hard drives and stream the content over the cloud.

Due to the integration with Amazon Cloud, there will be a few features that will be coming such as Camera Upload, Mobile Sync, and DVR, but these are not available at launch. Additionally, if you want to use a cloud service other than Amazon Cloud, you’ll have to wait as there’s no support for other options at this moment.

Here are the main features that are included with Plex Cloud:

  • 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!

Plex has opened the beta for Plex Cloud and is starting to send out invitations already. The catch with this is the cost. Plex Cloud will cost either $4.99 or $39.99 per year and the Amazon Drive subscription is priced at $60 for unlimited storage for a year.
