Noether of those are Cloud.

If you visit either of them, you'll find there is a "help" icon towards the top right, and that leads to a list of options that contains an "about Confluence" which will give you a version number.

Cloud systems won't give you a version (it's functionally useless to you) if you hit the "about" link.

But, I can tell you that both of those systems are Server or DC because of their URLs.  Until Atlassian implement the feature well known as CLOUD-6999, all Atlassian Cloud systems live on <something>   If it's not, then it's a server or DC install.

A really simple way to tell if you're on Cloud is to look at the menu bar across the top. If you see an "Apps" menu, you're in Cloud.
