Sharing the same storage with multiple servers it is not an option at this point in time. However, you can use any network storage system in order to share information across multiple servers. There's a major advantage on our platform to run this type of storage systems, since we are using Infiniband interconnects, which are built for very low latency and fast data transfers. For a more complex environment please take a look at GlusterFS and Ceph, very well known distributed open source file-systems in the enterprise community.
