I am trying to study the effects of various network based attacks in an Openstack Cloud environment that I have setup with few machines. However, what would be the fundamental difference between a VM created using Openstack and a normal VM created using a single machine?

Both of the VMs are ought to have the same specs. The major difference that I see is that the attacks done on VM in Openstack would take a different network route (due to distributed resource sharing) as compared to direct attack on a VM on a single physical machine but wouldn't the effect on both the targets be same?
