OpenStack Cinder services tend to not directly interfere with Compute services, so it is possible.

However, do consider the indirect interference - cinder will be using additional CPU, RAM, disk space and network bandwidth, that will therefore not be available to the compute services. You will want to consider reducing the amount of RAM & number of CPUs the compute node advertises as being available.

Consider also the points of failure for the system and what would happen when each host or service was unavailable.
