I think of Hub sites as a way of making it easier to organize the sprawl of sites that get created by adding common theming, search, and navigation across all sites that belong to a hub. So for your customers this could be a way to make it easier to link sites that have common goals, such as sites for HR initiatives.

In a literal sense they are a collection of sites but each site that is joined to a hub is itself a site collection. So each site has its own security and isolated content. The hub allows pieces to be shared across the members.

there are some key differences. First, hub sites are designed from the start to both push down to associated sites (nav, theme) but also to roll up content (news, sites webpart). Site collections/subwebs didn't really have great roll up functionality. Second, hub sites and associated sites are designed for a dynamic, flexible organization, where relationships may change over time, and the association between a site and its hub is a simple link that is easily changed. Site collections/subwebs were designed as a durable relationship and as you know the product does not make it easy to move subwebs between site collections. But for now, there are some needs best met by hub sites, and some needs best met by site collection/subwebs, and we'll do our best to make that clear.
