Bloomberg BusinessWeek: Box Inc. has launched a new cloud computing service for business users. OneCloud, as it is known, will allow users with iPhones or iPads to access more than 30 business applications, including Quickoffice, PDF Expert and EchoSign, in the cloud. The company hopes to expand the available applications soon.

Software makers like IBM and Oracle offer services similar to OneCloud. A 2011 Morgan Stanley report predicted that offsite workloads in the cloud would increase 50 percent per year through 2014. Box already claims users from 82 percent of Fortune 500 companies.
