If the server processes have access to the same filesystem, you can process
and display the notebooks in another application quite easily.
IPython.nbformat is a Python package to read and write them, but it's a
fairly thin wrapper around the JSON structures (apart from the bits to
convert between different format versions), so you can manipulate them from
any language that can work with JSON.

Simultaneous editing is trickier, because that would need to be integrated
into the notebook application. We do plan to do that at some point, but
we're still some way from it.
