Ahh Openstack is an option indeed 😀

You can deploy a VSA within an Openstack tenant and talk to the API endpoints in order to make snapshots of the instance (VM), but there is no CBT in place resulting in VM disks receiving a full CRC scan on each backup. If you have large VM's this will take a lot of time.
For other type of backups you will have to rely on agent based actions.

Please note that depending on the infrastructure specifications you could encounter a bottleneck on the networkers for Openstack.

Here is the information regarding Openstack Instance (VM) backup:

Depending on your network configuration you will need to assign a network or provide routing to the network for the VSA to communicate with the Openstack API endpoints to initiate the necessary activities on API components regarding Compute, Image, Network, Storage etc
