A cloud application (or cloud app) is an application program that functions in the cloud, with some characteristics of a pure desktop application (desktop app) and some characteristics of a pure web app. A desktop app resides entirely on a single device at the user's location (it doesn't necessarily have to be a desktop computer). A web app is stored on a remote server and is accessed over the Internet through a browser interface.
A cloud provider is a service provider that offers customers storage or software services available via a private or public network. Usually, it means the storage and software is available for access via the Internet.

A hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment in which an organization provides and manages some resources in-house and has others provided externally. For example, an organization might use a public cloud service, such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for archived data but continue to maintain in-house storage for operational customer data.
Private cloud is described as a cloud computing platform that is implemented within the corporate firewall and under the control of the IT department. A private cloud is designed to offer the same features and benefits of public clouds, but removes a number of objections to the cloud computing model including control over enterprise and customer data, worries about security and issues connected to regulatory compliance.
A public cloud is based on a cloud computing model where resources such as storage and applications may be shared by multiple companies and accessed over the Internet through a browser interface. Public cloud services may be free or offered on a pay-per-usage model.

In many cases, the "solution" also includes ongoing service and support from the partner.
