Hi! Sure, you would need a Publisher license and install the QlikView Distribution Service on the on-prem machine. If the machines are not part of the same domain, you'd also have to setup domain trust.

Just to clarify a bit further, it would also be possible to run Publisher side as its own environment with its own QMC etc., you would have to utilize Folder Distributions to get the reloaded files over to the cloud, or you could use RoboCopy via Supporting Tasks in Publisher as well, or something along those lines. Just wanted to add this to the post, as it may work better depending upon how integrated your cloud and internal environments are etc.
