They have the timecapsule product line already; add in the data syncronization between multiple machines paired to the timecapsule nas/router and you'll seel more of those nas/router boxes to home and business users.
I seriously do not see a single reason for consumer targeted cloud service to be offered when there are much better already deployed services such as Windows Live and Microsoft business cloud solutions. Works with all existing Windows based computers. Unless a small business is all Apple products I really can't justify deployment of iCloud.
Yes There are other services that offer cloud services, however what I have noticed is that Google has yet to release an API so that developers can or are able to sync data like documents to Google Docs. Amazon is great when it comes to the EC3 service, however find it difficult to mount disks on a mac. PC is great, but left out the macs. Then you have Amazon Cloud Service to store music and documents. But again, they left out the Syncing data between computer and Amazon Cloud. It will be interesting to see if iCloud can capture the enterprise or at least a way to sync your documents to the cloud. Just my two cents.
and trying to retrofit the business environment into iCloud would be like trying to force a square peg into a circular hole. For it's very limited business capabilities, there might be some that might try it for certain features, but, they'd be limiting their own business capabilities by going with something that is, up front, very limited on the business side, and not designed with businesses in mind.
