Is it an industry standard ?

No, there is no standard and no best way. This is off-topic here, please read the FAQ.

can you link to the rule? – Tom H May 23 '12 at 9:29
@TomH Oh, I wasn't aware that the tag autolinking isn't working in answers, just in comments. – Sven May 23 '12 at 9:34
I guess I meant is that off topic because it is a "learning material recommendation", or that it is chatty/discursive? – Tom H May 23 '12 at 9:44
I think chatty/discursive nails it. It's also not an actual problem per se, IMHO. – Sven May 23 '12 at 9:47
what about if it was reframed as "What is the industry standard to specify Virtual machine configuration in a summary format?". I guess my point is you could get into a discussion about almost anything, but there are only a few major VM players, and cloud providers, and if they have standardized around something, then there is a specific answer to the question. – Tom H May 23 '12 at 9:53
