Staging server configuration

Hi there. I need some configuration advice. Here is what I have to work with: 12 core atom with 128 gig ram, 2x 1tb we reds, 2x 500 gig, 2 port 10gbe adapter.

I use the machine to run proxmox, a pfsense vm, a docker vm mainly.

The goal is to transfer my video files after editing from my workstation via 10gbe to the server where I upload files to the cloud (samba). There is no real need for redundancy as files on my editing workstation only get deleted after successful upload. So I could live with files caching to ram until written if possible. My goal is to utilize the 10gbe link (Mb 20 with lag for multiple transfers?). What would be the best way to get there? Should I use a container or a VM for the staging server? What kind of storage setting would be beneficial?
