Corosync: Enhance Sheepdog Storage cluster to Non-PVE Hosts?

I currently think about using sheepdog for my shared storage cluster. I have 4 Intel NUCs for this, but I also have some other machines where lot of storage space is wasted currently because not used.
So one idea would be to enhance the sheepdog cluster to these too.

There is the special pve-sheepdog package where I think the main topic is that the pve corosync is used by default (correct?).
What else beside the pve-sheepdog package I would need to install on such a "Non pve host" to get them connected and able to use with the pve hosts?

Or would it be possible to install official sheepdog package and corosync?

Thank you for Info
