Beginning of this year I participated in the CloudSlam'09 conference with the paper devoted to a discussion on how the VM with interfaces to the Cloud can be designed and what are the major benefits of using the different approaches in core components of the virtual machine. You can access the full-text from this paper here.
It appears that alike discussions are moving with fast pace and they are going to be a main topic in the coming conference Storage Developer Conference 2009.
