Shai -

Assuming that the library you are using to write your provisioning scripts allows you to change the API end point URL/URI and port (to point to your nova-api server), OpenStack Nova should be very similar. 

You may need to repackage your images (for the virtualization solution you choose) but otherwise I don't see many differences.
