When you say "manage physical storage" are you referring to configuring 
something like Ceph or GlusterFS or even NFS on a bunch of baremetal 

That isn't a multi-tenant HTTP API service designed for lots of users 
but rather a need to automate some mostly one-time storage setup actions.

If so, I think that is more the realm of configuration management 
systems like Puppet or Ansible than OpenStack itself.
