Purchase advice for a small image archive (5-7 TB) with 2+ users

Hi, advice needed for a small database of digital images. Thank you all in advance:
Currently images (5-7TB) are being stored on several external hard drives. Only one PC can have access to it via USB cable.
What we need is a bit smarter solution where two or more PCs can access the archives. Seeking a olution that is fliexible and we can add more drives when needed.
We have no server or internal network.
Price is important.
Thanx again.

I hope you realize we are talking about the WD My Cloud here and the largest size it comes in is four terabytes.

Sorry, did not see a relevant group, any suggestions? Thanx

Build a small computer (or get an used one with SATA support, post 2007 should work and be affordable), install windows 7 or ubuntu and hook it to a router.

NAS are jokes.
