Cloud Server

A cloud server is a virtual server (rather than a physical one) that is hosted and delivered over a network and can be accessed on-demand by several users. Traditional dedicated server hardware, in contrast, is often installed on-site for the sole use of one business.

An example of a cloud server is Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a virtual server that allows users to run applications on the AWS cloud infrastructure. The term “elastic” refers to the ability of a user to construct, launch and terminate server instances as needed while paying per second for active servers.
Cloud servers form an important part of cloud technology. The advent and ongoing development of cloud computing has been significantly aided by the widespread use of server virtualization. Every sort of cloud delivery model, including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS), is powered by cloud servers.
A cloud server is enabled through virtualization. In order to link and virtualize physical servers, or to abstract their combined resources and pool them together to form virtual servers, management software known as a hypervisor is installed on the physical servers. The delivery of these virtual resources via the cloud may then be automated for shared use within a single business or between companies.
