In typical configurations, hwo are Clouds secured (for example: VMWare based with popular software)

Are there generally DMZ's on these systems,

Are there proxy's and tunneling services

In other words, is there a difference in how Clouds are configured


How are they actually configured, vs how they should be

The "cloud" (ohh how I hate that word) is simply hosting. It is nothing more than hosting that is elastic, and charges by the resource. If your load grows beyond what you expect, the resources can grow too, and so will your bill. It used to be hosting was mostly flat fee's, then "the cloud" came along and charged by the resource.
There is nothing different in cloud services vs hosted services, there are just bigger names in the game now than before. "Cloud" companies rely on Virtual Machines for everything, and some hardware obviously to run the VM's.
Anything you could imagine doing on a hosted service you can do on a Cloud service.
If you want to run a proxy, you can. The Cloud providers take the same precautions that hosting companies do and prevent you from accessing other peoples resources.
The only thing "the cloud" has different is it's payment billing/model.
