Not specific to any particular industry or requirements, but in general - are there currently commonly accepted standards regarding cloud-based applications?
I* am developing a system that will be deployed in the "cloud" (i.e. hosted by an IaaS/PaaS provider, ala Amazon EC2).
Besides any regulation or standard that applies specifically to my application - is there any formulated set of guidelines (not just best practices) or regulations specific to cloud architecture that I should comply with?
This is irrelevant to the type or content of the application, I'm asking specifically about the cloud infrastructure configuration.
The main intent here is to comply with any expectations the (enterprise) customers may have. (For actual security we are not relying on the regulations...)
(*) Okay, it's not really me, it's my client, but close enough.
