Development and systems Q&A

Is it possible to partition a LUN on a droplet.
I kind of found a solution to this issue.
I used a file to simulate a block device:
mkdir -p /lun/
dd if=/dev/zero of=/lun/sdb1.img bs=1M count=10240
losetup /dev/loop1 /lun/sdb1.img
This creates the illusion of a 10GB lun. Block Device

I suspect that using losetup to create a loopback device is the best/only option.
