What Is A Cloud Based Server?

A cloud based server is an item of physical or virtual infrastructure that performs storage functions for application and information processing. Cloud based servers are defined through virtualization which means that the physical server on which they run is divided into one or more virtual servers defined in software but having the same functions and visibility to the user. In cloud computing these servers are used to provide Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) functions to users which process workloads and store information the same as a physical server except that they are hosted remotely at the cloud provider’s site and are accessed through an online interface such as a web browser. This provides users with a cost-effective solution to their computing needs (which can scaled up or down as required) while freeing them from having to buy and maintain the physical hardware on which to run them
