At the beginning, companies who want AX 7 will have to deploy it in Azure public cloud. The "private cloud" which MS is currently working on is called "Azure Stack", which will also allow running AX 7 on premises. And probably AX 2012 too. Re number of servers used to run AX: not sure about your projects, but all my project with AX 2012 and most AX 2009 required at least 7 servers. SOme up to 25. Depends on the size of project of course.
