Is it possible to publish a map service with ArcGIS Online account (when ArcGIS for Server is not installed) perhaps based on one ESRI server clusters? Thank you so much

You cant exactly publish a map service like you would do on ArcGIS Server, but you can publish your content as a feature layer on AGOL.
Alexander Brown probably a silly question but.. Can you publish it to AGOL, but your data still reside locally? So just like regular on-premise ArcGIS Server? In other words can you "register" your data that resides locally, with AGOL? So the data comes from your on premise machines and stays up to date and does not eat lots of storage credit, but is still served from AGOL's Enterprise cluster?
You absolutely can. If your organization has ArcGIS Server, you can publish your content to ArcGIS Server. Go to the rest endpoints for that service, copy the url, and add the item from the web in ArcGIS Online.
Just be aware that once you do this, the service will not scale out like a traditional service on ArcGIS Online. If you get 1,000 requests on that service, your ArcGIS Server infrastructure will need to be able to support that number of service instances.
Alexander Brown, does that mean I could create an on-premise data store, but leverage AGOL Server to publish feature layers with tiling? Tiled feature layers load blazing fast but are only supported on AGOL now; with support coming to Server 'Enterprise' 10.7.1 or 10.7.2. So... would this be a way, to get tiled feature layer services while still keeping the data itself local? My point in asking this question was whether we could leverage AGOL as the "Server" to take advantage of new features that come to AGOL first, i.e. feature layer tiling, with on-prem data?
Alexander Brown did I understand that right? We can 'register' on premise data to AGOL and serve it from there, and leverage feature service tiling from data on our on-premise SDE or file GDB?
