A cloud server is primarily an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) based cloud service model. There are two types of cloud server: logical and physical. A cloud server is considered to be logical when it is delivered through server virtualization. In this delivery model, the physical server is logically distributed into two or more logical servers, each of which has a separate OS, user interface and apps, although they share physical components from the underlying physical server.
Whereas the physical cloud server is also accessed through the Internet remotely, it isn’t shared or distributed. This is commonly known as a dedicated cloud server.
