A cloud server is nothing but a logical server that has been created, hosted and delivered on the internet through a cloud computing platform. Cloud servers always possess and showcase identical capabilities along with functionality like a typical server. However, the only difference is that they are accessed remotely through the services of a cloud service provider. In other words, a server of this kind is also called a virtual server.
To explain further, this nature of server is most importantly an infrastructure that is sold as a service. You have two different types of cloud servers namely physical and logical. When a server is delivered through server virtualization, it is called logical server. Here we have a delivery model where the physical server is logically shared among a couple or more numbers of logical servers. Each of these servers has a separate operating system, an individual user interface and applications, even though they share the physical components from the underlying server.
When we have a physical cloud server it is one that is accessed remotely. However, it isn’t distributed or shared. This is most commonly known as the dedicated server. You need to choose your server depending upon your needs and requirements.
