I think it is ok, but if you wanted to, you could change it to say this

          OpenStack is a "cloud operating system" usable for both public
          and private clouds.  Its various parts take care of compute,
          storage and networking resources and iterface with the user
          using a dashboard.  The Nova Compute services uses libvirt
          to manage KVM, QEMU, LXC and Xen guests.
