I can confirm this what Daan said, openstack needs orchestration tool to 
update components in particular order. It's doable but needs pretty good 
knowledge about each service and component and compatibility to each 
other and versions running.

Exposing openstack api to public is not a thing I would recommend, many 
clouds create their own api on top. As a consequence, tooling and 
integration must be developed. an investment in time and knowledge must 
be made.

Cloudstack is much easier to manage and the api can be exposed to the 
public. Some public clouds based on cloudstack just have reduces the 
features exposed to the api but have not changed api, though existing 
integration, like orchesration and tooling can be used. Onboarding for 
customers will be much better covered.
