Come-on - it may be easier that someone else doing it for you, but that does not mean you can't have with without the cloud...
Seriously, the cloud has virtually limitless scaling!
On-premises you would need 200 servers sitting idle most of the time to get that amount of scaling.
For high-availability you can mirror some services on local, regional and zone level, all available for reads, giving you minimum latency all over the world as well as 99.99999999999999% (16 9's) uptime.
You probably don't need that for all your files, but you could create your own CDN for your websites, which you also can't do on-premises.
And it's as easy as selecting an option or moving a slider.
It's crazy to even think you could compete with the cloud on that level.

Yeah, it's REALLY free (up to 1,000,000 executions and x GB).

So you already know what you will do when your cloud provider will brake the rules?
I'll worry about that when the time comes.
Meanwhile, what will you do when your on-premises server has a breaking change or simply just breaks?
At a previous employer, their server just went out of space, good luck with that!

I really don't know what you're getting at or what you're worried about.
My development process hasn't changed, so I'm not "developing for the cloud", I'm just "developing", unless I want to use an Azure specific service like Functions, of course, but that's a choice.
I'm pretty sure I could host my web apps on AWS or GC as well if I wanted to, especially if I used containers, like Docker, but I don't.

I get a feeling you want to see your prejudices confirmed, but I'm not giving you that.
In fact, I don't think anyone who used the cloud will give you that because they're mostly not true.
