Plex Media Server
Plex Media Server is used to host the content and plugins that are then streamed to Plex big screen apps (including Plex Home Theater) and Plex mobile apps, either on the same machine, the same local area network, or over the Internet. In addition to the platforms supported by the front end, the server is available for FreeBSD, Linux and nine different NAS devices. Plex Media Server can be configured to index content in any directory on the machine it is run on, as well as to automatically acquire content from such sources as Aperture, iPhoto, and iTunes. Content may be transcoded by the server before it is streamed, in order to reduce bandwidth requirements or for compatibility with the device being streamed to.

Plex Media Server allows extensibility through the addition of plug-ins. Many such plug-ins are available through the built-in Plex Online digital distribution service. This service can be used directly within Plex Home Theater or Plex Media Center's GUI.

Plex uses the metadata from several free open-source online libraries to automatically find all artwork, media descriptions, and theme music for the entire library.

    WD EX2 Ultra reviews

    12TB My Cloud EX2 Ultra 2-Bay Personal Cloud Storage Server is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I wanted something that I could use for backing up and storing files with redundancy (RAID 1 cofig). I also have a PC and a Mac so I wanted something I could access with either computer. This is a nice storage server. It was very easy setting it up with one exception-- on the Windows 10 PC in order to access a user specific share folder I created, I needed to add the log in information to the credential manager. I am not an IT savvy person so without going through help forums online I would have never figured this out. In additon, there's no mention of it in the user manual. No issues on the MacBook Pro. That aside, the set up is easy and it works great. I have not yet had occasion to try to access it remotely or through a mobile device, but I plan to set that up eventually. I would recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best NAS for the money! i have been purchasing these drives for the past 5 years! they are the best that you can get for the money! ultra reliable red drives inside. WD does a good job at warranty claims. I own about 10 or 15 wd drives and yes I had problems with some of them but wd support will take care of you. not at recovery but at replacing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Buy! My 3tb WD MyBook Live Duo was at it's last MBs of storage and was becoming painfully slow so I had to replace it with a new NAS. I did a huge amount of research and decided this was the most bang for the buck. I use it as a 6tb (Raid 1) drive. It's much faster than my old WD NAS. I don't use the personal cloud feature/backup because I have unlimited Amazon storage so I can't comment on the functionality of that aspect. The drive came configured as Raid1 which was exactly what we needed. I'm not really a fan of WEB based access but the features of this are very thorough. There are more than enough settings to share and configure the drive. The internal fan is quiet and powerful but as an added precaution we added an additional fan above it to keep it extra cool. Quiet, fast, affordable. Worth your $$

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted This is a great product. The set up was mostly easy. I found that the instruction manual was not exactly accurate though. I needed to search online to find a few key pieces of info to set it up on my PC. The app on my iPhone was also pretty easy to set up, but again the instructions were not accurate. Overall though, not being an IT whiz, I was able to do this on my own for both a PC and Mac in about an hour or less.
