In the software industry, "The Cloud" is used as a metaphor to represent the Internet. Any computing resource, software, or service that can be shared over the Internet is considered to be in the Cloud. This sharing of resources and anytime/anywhere accessibility makes Internet-based software more efficient and cost effective than traditional on-premise software.

 Another term that is used to describe Internet-based software is Software-as-a-Service or SaaS. In this model customers pay subscription or usage fees to "lease" their application from the vendor. SaaS applications do not require the installation of any desktop software nor do they require any hardware investment by the customer. The SaaS model provides multi-tenancy, which means that multiple customers are hosted from a central location managed and maintained by the vendor. The software industry is quickly moving away from on-premise software in favor of Cloud & SaaS software. Gartner says that 25% of new business software will be delivered as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) by 2011.
