Servers are expensive and unless you invest in redundancy such as a redundant array with independent disks, there’s an increased likelihood that some of your servers could go down at any point.

This is known as elasticity and is a major benefit of cloud.

There are a handful of big cloud providers with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google being the top three, with the majority of the market share.

This is partly to avoid the risk of vendor lock-in but it’s also because there’s more flexibility when working with several providers.
