Is there an adaptor that will allow ISVs (E.g. Office 365) to be linked into OpenStack and also to be made available to all create VMs to be installed by the VM operators as they require it?

In this way, the company supplying the virtual server to the client can also supply them with server related software that can be purchased by the client, through the company. And then that software would be deployed onto the client’s virtual server (OpenStack).

The easiest example is a "Business App store" were the client admin can log onto their virtual server and buy a server related software product (like Office 365, McAfee) hosting company and then this add-on I'm looking for also installs the bought software onto the clients server and deploys it over their virtual network.

I think this can be done using the currently available pieces provided by OpenStack, between Heat recipes and other orchestrators. I'm not aware of any product or service ready to consume, though.

Thanks for the answer Smaffulli, I am still new to cloud services and decided to ask my questions first, before I dive into deep research and testing... I'll read up on the "Heat" feature to better understand that piece of OpenStack.
