I think some hardware binding as far the client communications are concerned will somewhat reduce the risk of getting it all mixed up. Some hard coding of the allowed IP addresses for a given client in the cloud services will create such barriers which cannot be easily hacked.

It is not so easy to replicate physical isolation using software, which makes security in cloud computing a strategy of risks vs economy trade off. Any way you look at it, it is a hassle to ensure data security and confidentiality when there are multiple clients with similar kind of businesses opting for cloud resources. Some kind of managed hardware solution could be the key to make it more secure.

Pretty much anytime some third party is setting up shared resources there is the possibility of getting it messed up as Rich points out. A temporary "walled garden" while being used would probably be of some help, but then there always seems to be a glitch or hack that gets around that.
