Is there a way to add my own backend store to Glance?

I want to use my own glance_store driver, one that I developed myself. I can't use Glance Filesystem nor Glance RBD, as we already have our own service to store files in our infrastructure, and with a custom API. How can I integrate my own backend to Glance to work with our own system?

Is there any project like Docker driver for Nova, but for Glance?
