Pegasus R6 as server AND personal hard drive
My small office runs off a gigabit ethernet network switch connected to a 2-disk raid 0 NAS.
I was looking at buying the pegasus R6 unit to replace the NAS as well as provide me with fast external storage. I was going to do this by connecting the R6 to my computer via thunderbolt, then allowing access to (part) of the storage via ethernet.
Does this seem like a silly thing to do? I'm guessing the other users should get fastest speeds possible for gigabit ethernet (100 odd MB/s) while I get 600+ MB/s. Seems like a win-win. Unless there is a better configuration I'm missing?
Suggestions much appreciated.

The pegasus is mere an very fast secure (raid) external drive. Meaning it has no ethernet ports so your computer has to be on all the time an other computer wants to access the shares, these shares you will have to enable on your computer. In short this can work but one computer has to function as a fileserver on the other hand this will very likely be much faster than an cheaper has.
