Cinder volume as file system

Hi Everyone,

Is there a way to create a volume drive with Cinder that is not an actual disk? I hope that this is clear, but what i would like to do is to write data dynamically to a local file which will be persistent as a drive. For example, using NFS we write to a local file which is then written to the distant FS. Here i would like to write to a local file and never upload it to the network. I was thinking of using SambaFS for example, but i could not find a proper procedure or where do i actually download the driver. And, i am also not sure that it would work with Sambafs. I would appreciate any input in this.

Thank you kindly, Michael
