>From my point of view it is not advisable to base some functionalities
of the instances on direct calls to Openstack API. This for 2 main

Openstack code does change) it will be required to change the code of
the software running in the instance too; the second one: if in the
future one wants to pass to another cloud infrastructure it will be more
difficult to achieve it.
