Cloud based system but the Database inside the company?

Is it possible to have a cloud-based system but the data and documents can be stored inside the company firewall on their own servers?
I'm sorry for my ignorance, but I don't know this. I've tried to find the answer but I just cant find it so I'd like to ask those people who do know.
I've designed a system that captures the Business Architecture for each business area in a company, but:
1) As a company's key business steps (key steps for each supply / value chain, inc business processes and rules, plus all the other info surrounding what they do and how they do it) is their core competance and is their mission-critical info, and
2) since reading here that cloud-based storage is not always secure,
I want to make sure I'm going the right path before I commit to developing the system.
My plan was to use SSL and encryption while data was being transferred, so is this SaaS and not including storage (STaaS) or am I missing some things you can see?
.. May I ask for your thoughts or guidance on this?
