you could use it as a provider of nfs shares using the generic cinder nfs driver.

it also can provide isci volumes but there is no driver that can talk to free nas
to actully create those.
there is a FreeNAS cinder driver from  iXsystems but i dont think they are involded with upstream development much.
at least they are not listed on

so your milage will vary but it should technially be possible to do.
this is wehre there user docs are
which just point you back to the git repo so it does not look like there is much support unless you are willing to support it yourself.
