    Cloud servers are fine, if you're either small enough that they're cheap, or big enough that you can get a deal.  If you run containers on top of them - LXC or Docker, pick your poison - it is possible - not easy, but possible - to move to any other cloud provider, or to leased servers, or to your own hardware.
