Question on emptyDir

In the readings on volume spec regarding the emptyDir volume it says ' Any data created is written to the shared container space.' Can someone explain this further to me? What is the shared container space, where is it located?

    All containers in a pod have equal possible access to storage, without locking. So if containerA and containerB both are configured to write to the same storage there is nothing to order the writes, which could effectively lead to corruption.
