Can you partition to use one partition as a Time Capsule and the other 1/2 as external storage? I would set up as Raid 1.

With a few bucks, this is completely compatible. You may verify this with the LaCie web site where i With a few bucks, this is completely compatible. You may verify this with the LaCie web site where in will find the instruction manual. My Mac is about 5 years old and I wanted the drive for a web server application and additional storage so the 16 TB drive will be run as rad 1.
The drive comes with a USB 3.1 to USB 3.0 cable so the drive out of the box will connect to a 3.0 USB port on the Mac at speeds of up to 5Gb/s. The drive will also work with a USB 2.0 port however at speeds of 480 Mb/s. The manual provides instructions for OS X 10.9 and 10.10 so is this drive is intended for use with systems without Thunderbolt connectivity.
I have exhausted all of the USB ports on my system so Thunderbolt of which I have only used one port is the desire connection for my system. This is possible if you buy the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter and a Apple Thunderbolt 2 to Thunderbolt 2 Cable. Your transfer rates will be around 20Gb/s compared to the 40Gb/s of Thunderbolt 3.
The drive can be reformatted to FAT 32 or exFAT if you have to move data between a Mac and Windows however it may only be connected to one computer at a time. The drive comes formatted as HFS+ ready to use on your Mac.
As this drive arrived today, 2 days after I ordered it, I I have only verified the connections work in both cabling configurations, the drive was accessible and showed 16TB of storage. While I haven't pushed the drive, the fan noise is minimal and I look forward of years of usage from this drive.
