I like to run a Lightning node and need some inputs.

Providing Internet, Electricity 24*7 to my home system/Raspberry (Umbrel setup) is super challenging in my place.

Like to know if running pruned bitcoin-core, LND in a cloud server (~$10/mo.) is a good idea?

What are the catches with this approach, apart from the obvious one of "Trusting the cloud vendor".

https://voltage.cloud/ provides a $13/mo. package (LND with Neutrino), which matches my exact requirement. But my intent is to setup and run things by myself. For the sake of learning.
