Virtual6 announce Plex VM trial.

Plex allows you to aggregate all your personal media and access it anywhere you go. Enjoy your own media on all your devices with the Plex Media Server.

Virtual6 have recognised the demand for a Virtual Machine tailored towards Plex Media Server. We understand that not many VPS offer the resources required to run a Plex Media Server smoothly, even our own Virtual Machine range. For that reason, we’re proud to announce our trial run of what we’re calling the Plex VM. By trial, we don’t mean that the service will disappear if there’s no interest, by trial we mean we’re limiting the amount of stock available primarily.

The resources are as follows:

  • 500GB RAID-1 HDD
  • 2 x 2.66GHz Dedicated vCPU core(s)
  • Unmetered Data, 60Mbps Network Port
  • France Datacenter (Excluded from our SLA)
  • 1 x IPV4 Address & IPV6 Available
  • £9.99 PCM, £2.31 One Time Setup Fee – Contact us to purchase

Servers are delivered with Ubuntu 16.04 Desktop pre-configured, with FireFox web browser, Transmission BitTorrent Client, Plex Media Server and Open SSH Daemon pre-installed. This setup allows you to acquire your media using SFTP or BitTorrent to use with Plex Media Server. You’re free to install whatever else you may need.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions throughout this trial via the comments section of this post. Thank you for your time.
