Default Creating your own cloud in linux

I would like to offer a cloud to my customers. I understand the hardware needs. Just would like to know if a good web based os "FreeNAS" or similar would be sufficient. Lets discuss.

I have also thought about the same thing, I have a bunch of servers used for hosting etc.
However, for cloud storage it just isn't worth it. Amazon S3 is $0.15/gb and offers levels of encryption and security that it works out more economical to use them (or someone similar) and have them provide & maintain the hardware.

What kind of cloud? Backup? File storage? App servers?

Thanks for the reply, This was going to be primarily for back up and file storage for my customers. Though Anglian above made a good point. How then can i get an established cloud to sector out for my customers and be maintained by me for servicing ect...? I wouldn't mind doing that.
