It's just the phrasing of it as there is going to be a physical sever somewhere or a cluster of them. I can understand spreading the RAID over separate locations. That would be more secure than storing all data at one location and the internet was about a geographical cluster of nodes.

Sure but the point of cloud computing isn't that it's just "someone else's computer (tm)". The failure of a physical server should not result in the outage of a service. Of course, stuff has to be designed for this model to work effectively with it. I don't think old lamp stack that runs old fashioned forums is particularly well suited, though you could have the actual front end web server containerised and perhaps migrate the db to cloud SQL where failover can be automated.

Costs, though.
