Frankly, I believe all of these types of services should be built as 
applications that run on OpenStack (or other) infrastructure. In other 
words, they should not be part of the infrastructure itself.

There's really no need for a user of a DBaaS to have access to the host 
or hosts the DB is running on. If the user really wanted that, they 
would just spin up a VM/baremetal server and install the thing themselves.
