The following reply will answer your main question but before that let me clarify the second part of your question which is "VPS and Cloud are pretty much same thing". Actually, it is not completely true, there are some differences. Because a VPS is an environment created using a single physical server split into several smaller servers. Whereas a "Cloud" is a collection of multiple servers connected together in a cluster giving the user more power and better performance.
Now, our main question "Is Bare metal dedicated server same as regular dedicated Server?"
A bare metal environment is typically created using bare metal hypervisors that don’t require the support of a host operating system. Hypervisors are directly installed on the hard drive and can create virtual machines as in a typical virtualized environment.
A hypervisor is computer software, firmware or hardware that creates and runs virtual machines. The hypervisor has its own device drivers and interacts with each component directly for any I/O, processing or OS specific tasks. On a hypervisor, each virtual machine has its separate guest OS and share of memory, computing power and hard drive storage.
The reality is that bare metal cloud and dedicated servers are related because one is part of the other. A bare metal server environment is made up of 1 or more single-tenant/dedicated servers. A dedicated server is a standalone server, with a given specification, that the customer has complete administrative access to.
