My company looking for some solution for High availability with Postgres.

Our optional solution is as follows : Two DB servers will be using a common external storage (with raid). Both servers are going to use the same DB files on the storage (as active/passive)

Now I'm trying to understand how Postgres can work with this configuration. I.e :

DB_server1 crashed, so we want to start DB_server2 using same files. Is it possible ?
