Yes. But.

The EDS running in your browser operates on a JSON file with selected
data elements from the SAML metadata. That JSON could come from
anywhere, including a file on whatever webserver you serve the EDS
from. How that file then gets updated would be up to you (e.g. simply
pulling it via a curl command, in a cron job).

While you could reference the DiscoveryFeed handler of a Shib SP from
another server (by using a full URL in your EDS config) that may or
may not work great since that JSON feed is served up by the Shib SP
and that is not in itself a highly performing generic web server.
