Is Khaos Control cloud based and what infrastructure might I need?

The term “cloud based” means many things to many people, depending on who you ask and what the context is. Khaos Control can be considered a cloud based solution because you can run it on a remote server, which is either under your control or controlled by us. Either way, you don't have any server costs as a capital expenditure, but instead lease on the server on a monthly contract. It is assumed that your IT resource cost may be reduced too. Using this model, you are able to take advantage of virtualisation to scale processing power as you need it, which is a core concept of cloud computing. However, if you'd prefer to host Khaos Control on a server that you own and control, one installed on your own local network, then that also works.
