2 IPFS nodes pointing to 1 network attached storage

Is it technically possible to have 2 IPFS nodes pointing to the same network attached storage for the purpose of sharing the underlining block data?

Theoretically yes, using flatfs, you could mount .ipfs/blocks on shared storage.

I’m not sure how bad the performance would get though, and I have no first-hand knowledge so I hope things don’t fail in some other way.

Awesome, thanks for that. I’ll give it a go and see what happens. Each gateway server is limited to 1Gbps, while the storage box is 10Gbps, so in theory the storage box won’t be overwhelmed.
