Can I share an MSA 2012sa between two networks?

I have two networks which need to pass files in one direction, but the networks cannot be connected. I am wondering if an MSA 2012sa with two ports can be used as a common storage device by connecting one port to a server on network A and the other port to a server on network B? I know the MSA 2012sa supports a 2 server configuration, but I do not know if the 2 servers have to be on the same network/domain. Thanks for any help.

Which operating system is installed on the servers? Note that it MUST have support for a shared filesystem. NTFS, or ext2/3 does not.

Do not attempt to run your own 'experiments' whether your configuration 'works' !!
Trust me - you do risk damaging important data!!
