"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Depends if you really want to put in all the resources necessary. Please note, most Cloud solutions are based on high availability and redundancy (meaning not just one server). Then you program all your types of access (web page, desktop and mobile apps). As for collaboration in real time, you need even more resources.
So, if you have a few thousand (up to 100K) USD$ of budget, please do develop your own cloud solution.
If you have exactly 0 dollars to spend, just use Google's solutions (Drive, Docs Sheets)
