Simple, safe way to store media and then share them over the network

Plex is a media management system that takes your entire collection of movies, music, and photos making them available to all media devices in the connected home. At the center of your Plex ecosystem is the Drobo 5N with support for streaming music, high definition video, and photo sharing. Drobo utilized with Plex is an excellent way to centralize and share all of your rich media content stored on a Drobo. This not only provides significantly increased throughput supporting multiple simultaneous streams, but ensures that data is stored in a redundant manner protecting content from data loss due to a hard drive failure.

Like a Drobo, Plex does not require advanced IT knowledge to configure and interface with the devices. Utilizing standards based DLNA technology; Plex offers out of the box support for nearly all network enabled televisions and media devices. Although DLNA is supported for simple integration, for the best user experience, it’s recommended to use a Plex capable client stored in the best format for that platform (iOS, Android, Roku3, Samsung SmartTV, etc…). By creating media content optimized for mobile streaming you can easily access your media on the go with MyPlex. Using MyPlex you can have access to your content stored on the Drobo streaming directly to your mobile devices.
