Well indeed that is a valid point. All cloud to me means is that there is some abstracted instance of x and that it does not always relate to a particular physical device, indeed, it may well be spread around a few physical devices.
I don't think there is any implied magic redundancy automatic failover move your instance to another bit of metal if something breaks in there unless that's specifically stated.
