Managing volume: Do I have to use a whole disk for Cinder?

So I'm following this installation guide:http://docs.openstack.org/juno/install-guide/install/yum/content/cinder-install-storage-node.html

I'm trying to install Cinder for the first time, and in there it says I should create a partition that uses a whole disk for the block storage device, but I only have one hard-drive. Can I just create one partition with, let's say, 100 gb and create the block storage service there?

Actually I'm using RDO, but I decided to install Cinder manually just to understand it better. I'm using the instructions in this guide above. I have a two-node setup in my lab, with swift and nova, and I wanna install Cinder to attach volumes to my instances, for future need.
