It depends on your target hypervisor:

Hyper-V supports VHD and VHDX images, VMWare supports VMDK, KVM supports QCow2, RAW, etc.

You can easily convert among image formats with qemu-img, see for example: http://www.cloudbase.it/qemu-img-windows/

if you have multiple hypervisor types in your openstack deployment, just add a hypervisor_type property to your image, e.g.:

glance image-create --property hypervisor_type=hyperv --name "Windows Server 2012 R2 Std" --container-format bare --disk-format vhd --file image.vhdx
