I read it as the poster linking a service to a server.  That would imply
to me a small amount of traffic.  The notion that a service is somehow
related to a server is valid for rates of traffic that a single server
can handle but things change once you scale beyond that level.  A
service provided to the internet does not map to a server except in
small scale operation.
