Interesting. Thank you all for your input so far. On one hand, I can see how cloud, whatever it means to you, might replace VPS. It makes sense how that can be a more natural transition.
However, WHY will a dedicated server will always be a thing?

That sounds almost like an oxymoron. One one hand, you are saying that servers will always be necessary but at the same time customers will be further away from the hardware. Isn't that kind of the point that customers will stop shopping for dedicated servers because there will be so many connected networks that people will just seek a slice of something that never goes down rather than its own dedicated server. It will suddenly feel so yesterday, so outdated, to have a standalone server.
Unless you mean servers will always be necessary in the scope of creation of a cloud setup.
