I'd say you set up Bacula on the instance as if it were a physical server.

All I can say is that the OpenStack instances must be reachable from the other network.

If the instance are reachable from other can the bacula machine get the volumes from the cloud site?

When volumes are attached to instances, they look like block devices to those instances and can be backed up. When they are not attached, they can be backed up using Cinder. Volumes can also be attached to other things than instances, but I don't know if Bacula supports that.
