Can we use a My Book Essentials 3TB device as a network backup device

We purchased a My Book Essentials 3TB device. My manager is hoping we can install to an existing network server and set all floor computers to schedule backups to save on the device.  What are the chances we can make this happen?

Thank you.

It depends on the router, however I dont recomend this. Use a My Book Live instead.

Thank you for the suggestion.  May I dig a little and ask which ‘Live’ product for our needs?  Thanks again.

Heres an overview of the products .
