I am totally new to Linux and OpenStack. I am trying to install fresh Ubuntu 14 and I am wondering how should I partition the hard drive in order to have Cinder on the server.

You have a couple of options as below: 1. Use gparted 2. Partition the disk using fdisk 3. Use loop back devices -

NOTE: I often use loop back devices for creating cinder volumes because it does not require partitioning.
