There are many details involved in setting up a scalable storage system.

For a small office / home office, a NAS is typically sufficient. This combines storage and one or two network interfaces in one package.

Larger installations (e.g. Microsoft's server farm) must provide multiple network interfaces, and perform load balancing between them. This is an entirely different field (see Network Load Balancing - Wikipedia). These server farms will typically have one computer per few network interfaces.

Lastly, the storage in a large server farm is typically pooled between the various computers using SAN or related protocols (see Storage area network - Wikipedia). Other issues, such as hot-swapping of storage, storage reliability, etc. are beyond what can be put in a short message.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
