How do Infrastructure as a Service and multi-tenant services differ?

Is there any difference between Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and multi-tenant services? Has the cloud changed the definition?

Infrastructure as a Service is very similar to what we've known as hosting or collocation services, just painted with bright cloudy colors. Multi-tenant services are any services that you offer to multiple customers, or "tenants." In most cases, IaaS and multi-tenant services mean the same thing, although you could also implement storage- or database-related multi-tenant service.
