Continuously Available File Server with no storage array

We are attempting the following. We have two servers that we have configured in a failover cluster. We would like to point a mission critical application's cache files to this cluster. The files need to be available at all times, and are constantly in use. It seems like Continuously Available File Server would meet our needs but we would like to run this without using a storage array.

Is this possible?

    Scale out file servers were added in Server 2012 and would foot the bill. You can use local storage, attached storage and even removable device storage.
