Home server on Orbi?

Not sure model is correct. My login says RBR50, but it is both router and satelilte... 

Anyway, I am trying to create a server for my ALL Mac home so that I can have one location for all my music on laptop/ipad/desktop.  

Is it possible to connect one to the Orbi router, and if so, does it need to be another Mac or computer or can it just be  a harddrive?  

I have a 10 year old Mac Mini with 10.6 software and all my current ones are 10.13.x


TIA, 
Jeff 

Model: RBK50| Orbi AC3000 High-Performance Tri-Band WiFi System

Don't bother with a mac mini thats so old.  I recommend investing in a synology NAS.  It's what i use.  It has an itunes server for music, centralized file services, plex for media, and a photo gallery for storing all your pictures.
