Is is possible to "share" direct attach storage connected via SAS3 between multiple servers for a failover scenario? I have the following unit which comes with 2 quad SAS3 modules for connectivity to servers. Ideally I'd like to be able to connect this unit to 2 servers even if one is just in "standby" mode so that I can quickly and easily make use of the storage if my main server was to be down for whatever reason. I know this is possible via multipath via storage using something like iSCSI but I can't find a lot of information on this being done using storage connected directly to external SAS HBA's.
