Deploying to cloud server or no?

Hello, I just purchased a copy of bootstrap studio and I am just wondering if it needs to be used on the server computer or can I just copy all source files to the server when I am finished? I use windows for all my browsing needs, but have ubuntu machines as well if I need to use the server computer, but I would really like to use a cloud vm instead of my personal computer. Please let me know and sorry for the noob question.
