There are two type of local storage for default configuration: data and index.
Data is stored in db and some big binary node stored in local file
system (which could configured to store everything in db).
Index is used by lucene which could only be on file system.

You may look for cluster deployment:

Data could be only used by single JVM,
Index could be read from multi jvm and write from one jvm.

You could with some coding, see following classes for more details:
org.apache.jackrabbit.core.TransientRepository(final RepositoryConfig config)
