          Hi,

           

          Cloud is a concept which includes various components. You could refer following url for understanding Cloud in common,

          https://cloud.oracle.com/home

           

          Fusion Applications resides on Oracle Cloud

          Hence unlike the Oracle EBS On Premise which used to be hosted on servers/data centers in client premises, the Oracle Fusion Applications for a client are stored in remote servers and hence the term 'Cloud'.

           

          Hope this helps

           

          Thanks

            Fusion can also be installed on-premise too though - which is how it started out. Similarly EBS can be in the cloud.

             

            I'd imagine the question being asked is "if I buy Fusion on-premise with an HCM licence, how is that different from an HCM cloud product"?

             

            They are very similar - fusion is the baseline of cloud offerings, however the versions for on-premise and cloud differ. You'll probably struggle to find an Oracle Sales guy who'll sell you on-premise over cloud.
