comment Can Dell Equallogic share a LUN that's not dirty for NTFS writes?
MarkM has laid out the main options for you in terms of getting that storage mounted and basically accessible but as far as I know, the storage doesn't have any "magic" to keep the filesystem "clean" with regard to multiple hosts doing writes and locking files independent of each other outside of a managed cluster scenario. In other words, it's down to OS and protocol whether access by multiple hosts can be done cleanly rather than storage.

comment How to keep load-balanced servers synced even with deleted files?
I am definitely a fan of NFS but keep in mind that while it consolidates everything in place, it does mean that all of your front-facing sites are dependent on that one shared copy as both a single point of failure and a single set of resources if performance is an issue.
