Do you remember all the apprehension about cloud migration in the early days of cloud computing? Some of the concerns ran the full paranoia gamut from unreliability to massive overcharging for cloud services. Some concerns, such as the lack of security of the entire cloud infrastructure, rose to the level of conspiracy theories. It is nice to know that those myths are all behind us.

It seems that many of the earlier misconceptions have been replaced with new notions about the cloud. Some of the newer ideas focus on misconfigurations. Legitimately, recent posts about misconfiguration problems are cause for concern. However, this does not rectify the problem of some of the myths about cloud configurations.
In an effort to remedy some of these myths, Tripwire has produced a white paper that seeks to debunk five common myths about cloud misconfigurations, and how Tripwire can help with the transition into the cloud.
