Unless I am wrong, I believe that Ubuntu One is just like a Dropbox. It is a file storage service. In other words, just like you said, it is just a file storage space given. You can read more about Ubuntu One by clicking on the link below:

Now, if you are interested in starting your own cloud, you can do it with Ubuntu Server. Here is more reading on that subject. Click the link below:

Hope this answers it.

Does it allow hotlinking or any bandwidth limit? – BigSack Aug 18 '12 at 9:24
Ubuntu One is not just like dropbox, but it is not a cloud computing service either. It's a data synchronization/access service; more than simple storing/syncing of regular files. – dobey Aug 19 '12 at 23:26

No. UbuntuOne is a could personal files storage system, it will not run the services for you. A better option for you is really use something like Amazon EC2 instance and have your services running there. Ubuntu can deploy and configure that on the fly using Juju Charms.
