Multiple-machine deployment for 10.2 and server directories/config-store

Hello - Our current Server 10.0 architecture contains two dedicated production VM servers, each having a duplicate copy of the data (file gdbs, mxds, msds)  residing on their D: drives. Also, each server has their own server directories and config-store folders residing on the D: drives.

Given that we want to have copies of the data on both servers, my question is - for our upgrade to 10.2, is it necessary and optimal to retain this same structure or is it recommended to have only one set of folders (server dir and config-store) on either one GIS Server or a dedicated fault-tolerant file server with UNC paths so that both GIS servers can connect to them?  Thanks!
