The quick answer is no, since one server instance must be able to manage
access to the data, so access on shared devices is specifically blocked.
In the situation you describe we have each server providing it's own
copy of the data, but most users are only reading the data, so making
sure a write is replicated across both is easy.

Just what are you managing data wise as that will determine just what
advise to give next?
