AbstractCloud Computing offers on-demand access to computational, infrastructure, and data resources operated from a remote source. It also moves functions and responsibilities away from local ownership and raises several legal issues, such as data protection. In this chapter, we investigate Cloud architectural views defined by international organizations, and reveal common usage patterns in Cloud federations where legal problems may arise.
