Plex Cloud: Now Available!

Plex have now officially released Plex Cloud! This has been in beta since last September. This is only available to Plex Pass subscribers. I have always been a fan of Plex so I was pleased to hear this news! Plex have built the ability to be able to use a cloud provider to host your movies, music etc and be able to play them through your Plex library. This provides a way to be able to use Plex without the need to purchase local storage/NAS boxes to store these files. This also adds a layer of security if you do not want to open ports on your Firewall for Plex.

You will need to purchase a Plex Pass subscription if you haven’t already to take advantage of using Plex Cloud. You can use the following Cloud Providers with Plex Cloud:

  • DropBox
  • Google Drive
  • OneDrive

These providers provide the following free tiers:

  • DropBox: 2GB
  • Google Drive: 15GB
  • OneDrive: 5GB

I would personally recommend Google Drive, as they provide 15GB. I have always used Google Drive as I find they also have a very fast upload/download speed when I’m using a very good internet connection, I have had experience with other providers taking a long time to upload files even when using the same internet connection.

Depending on the size of your library it may be a better investment to purchase a NAS rather than paying monthly fees with the Cloud Providers, however you also would need to take in consideration security, electricity bills and your internet fees.
