What is the cloud? It is an interconnecting of servers using the internet to move data between them, so it is basically the internet. When you save to the cloud, it's not on your computer, or even in the server in the other room - its saved on another server, or series of shared servers out in the internet somewhere.
You can run programs from the cloud, known as 'software as a service' (email, games, CRM). You can run platforms, known as 'platforms as a service' (webservers, databases). You can have 'networking as a service', infrastructure as a service (virtual machines, VLANs).
