There are a variety of ways to do it. You could get a NAS, a disk drive connected to a router, or a storage device shared by one of the other devices on the network.

i dunno if you want all 4 devices on the network, this means all the files of the 4 devices can be accessed by any one on the network. You can use something like WD simple solution or something more pro like Synology .

I highly suggest you research this before buying or implementing anything, there is always that "I wish I knew this before I made the purchase" thought afterwards.
