We are primarily cloud users not administrators but have been using the ansible cloud launcher role . This has the ability to manage resources that are typically set by the administrator including quotas and flavors.
For image management we have nodepool  building images with disk image builder daily and uploading those images to the clouds we use.
Hope this helps,
