What is Azure?
A Cloud Server Hosting Provider
Why buy a server vs cloud?
Couple reasons such as a server takes up physical space and uses electricity (Electricity is a Point of Failure too ). Also has a high upfront cost in comparison to a Cloud Server. Less things can go wrong. A cloud server can run in Replicated Geographical locations yet a local onsite server can only run in one location meaning physically is in one location. Security is also high in Azure Datacenters.
Are Cloud servers for small business?
The cloud is very elastic meaning it can scale very small and very big.
