Arbitrary user application deployment to Openstack

Hi,

This is more of a philosophical/theoretical question rather than a technical help. I have been into openstack for almost a month now with the aim of deploying a third party arbitrary user application like Openfire XMPP communication server or an enterprise version of it in the cloud.

At this point of time, I run into a doubt that not any application built to run in bare metal hardware devices is optimum enough to just deploy in openstack cloud. My reasoning for thinking that is they might not me modular and built into micro-services, so scaling them might not be that efficient. They being orchestrated conveniently might be an advantage to some though.

Looking for some views on that :)

Thanks
