Compute cloud interoperability across different domains represents a major challenge for the System administrator community. This work takes a look at the issues for enabling heterogeneous synchronization of virtual disk log attributes by use of an associative mapping technique. We explore this concern as a function of providing secure log auditing for the virtual machine (VM) cloud. Our contribution provides novel theoretical foundations that can be used to establish these synchronized log audit requirements supported by practical case study results.
