You're not going to escape having to trust someone along the way, the goal is to minimize this trust. Presumably the win with CryptDB is that you don't want to trust Joe Developer who is writing SQL queries, and you don't want to trust Evil Steve who is walking around the cloud datacenter with a bolt-cutter and a USB drive.

Right now, if you want to store sensitive data, you basically have to do it all in-house, which costs big money (think of all the PCI regulations you have to satisfy and auditors that you need to pacify).
