Pi Cluster - lithros - 04-16-2018

I have watched videos of people making Pi clusters. I was wondering if there was any benefit to using a cluster for a Plex server.

Thanks

Pi Clusters are fun for learning & just for the joy of creating - but there's no perceptible benefit. If you're looking for a super powerful Plex server, Pi won't be it... you should instead look at an i7 or something :) But there's nothing to say you can't build a cluster and make PlexPi operate on it - just make sure your motivation is for the education and fun of the project, not performance, otherwise you will spend a lot of time and be disappointed.
