You should be able to provision a VM with multiple volumes attached, provided you are also running the Cinder service in your environment. I believe cloudbase-init can assist with the partitioning of those drives on first boot.

There is an older thread that mentions this as well:

Thanks James for your reply, I am actually looking for automating the entire stuff, when an end user requests for a VM he will not have to do anything except RDP using his domain credentials and should be able to see all the above mentioned drives in his login
