A switch does not have this technology at all (at least to my knowledge for consumer grade stuff) as all it does is repeat/forward whatever it gets, its a dumb machine. Whereas a router is a smart machine and can do this (usually 1 USB port limited to a 1.5-2.0TB external usb HDD)

You'd really only be able to get one of them on there, and even still i can't imagine the transfer rates are overly spectacular due to USB 2.0 controllers that are used to communicate/interface with a router with usb capabilities or a PC.

You really should be building yourself a dedicated server or a NAS.
