It's a SaaS offering, it has nothing to do with servers, VMs, and other stuff offered by IaaS/PaaS. If you are looking for such, Azure is the Microsoft Public cloud service.

I guess O365 does mean Azure in your question though O365 is technically a brand name for group of software and services based on Microsoft cloud - Azure. if so, then

Q1: yes, and PaaS.

Q2: Microsoft P2V utilities are available such as DISK2VHD, which can create virtual disks for Hyper-V VMs including those for Azure, aka cloud based Hyper-V.

Q3: no, so far. basically only x86 and ia64 processors are compatible with current Hyper-V/Azure platforms.

Ok thanks, so instead of install MS Office (Word, Excel, Exchange, SharePoint server
& SharePoint client) within our company's premises/servers, we launch those software
remotely (which allows us to share a pool of licences) :

When we save our data / emails / SharePoint docs, do they get saved in MS' cloud
or they get saved in our laptops or ?
