Osmosis - cell transport

Osmosis is the movement of water from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration across a semi permeable membrane, but how does it link to the surrounding water being Hypertonic, Hypotonic and Isotonic?
In other words, how do Hypertonic, Hypotonic and Isotonic water have to do with Osmosis?
Thanks in advance :)
