One Ultrium Drive and Two servers

Can I one external Ultrium drive (Ultrium 460) attach to two servers simultaneously?

Is Anybody test with this configuration?

Or what device I can used for that configuration?

Not direct. The "best" solution is to connect the drive to a FC-bridge and FC-HBAs in the servers. But, far to expensive.

Is the drive intended to use the for backups ? A backup tool as Data Protector may be the solution.
