OpenStack as a service — provisioned locally, orchestrated in cloud

Network services are typically considered to reside on-premises or in the cloud, but rarely bridge the two.

Systems like OpenStack are thought of as something you run locally (your own private cloud), out in the cloud and as an end-user (let's say you are using Rackspace or Dreamhost). But it's possible to take a hybrid approach in which some cloud services run in the cloud, and the private cloud resides on-premises.
