Does my company really need the Virtual Windows Server we have hosted?

I work for a small company with about 40 employees and about 45 windows machines. We are all set up on office 365 and set up on Azure AD for user and group management. We have 5 locations, all with firewalls set up
We outsource a lot of our IT help to a company that hosts a virtual windows server for us, but only one of the administrators is currently added to the active directory within that domain controller.
My question is, with the prevalence of the cloud, and being such a small company, what exactly is that server doing for us? What would we lose if we did away with it, because so far, I don't really see the benefit in having it set up.

    There is no way we can answer that since we have no way to know what services are provided from the server. The answer could be anywhere from "You won't lose anything" to "You'd lose essentially the entire business".

    But what are you actually asking? Are you considering going through all of the cost and effort of converting to a cloud-based environment? Have you done any of the needed research?
