Network share would in a proper setup be the local disk of the compilation 

Also, one cannot copy locally the toolchain if the server is different OS, 
unless a cross compilation environment is setup, which in itself is a major 
piece of work.

I’d prefer rsync though, as it would be easier to setup the ports/ firewalls 
etc., plus it would be faster than the network share.   In my hypothetical 
use-case the compilation server is often in a different country, and VPN would 
be the only feasible network share setup.

Just my 2 cents,
