Cloud security is better than you think it is. Or?

A very interesting conversation about how cloud security stacks up compared to traditional security.

There are different types of cloud types and their security models are different. While SaaS and PaaS are valid topics, this conversation focuses mainly on public IaaS clouds.

The claim is that the cloud is no more secure or insecure than any other multitenant environment.

But how will different tenants affect each other?
What about PCI compliance?

Some cloud providers seem to believe that layer 3 security is enough, but the cloud is different.
