When you run a Sage script on an remote notebook (or cloud), it is executed on the server (otherwise, the server would have to send you the Sage binaries first!).

I'll add that your web browser will do some things, e.g., render 3d graphics, show latex previews, which can be somewhat CPU or RAM intensive. But most heavy lifting happens remotely on our servers, not on your computer. This why you can close your browser/computer, then come back an hour later (say), and things are still running.
