To explain further; the Android Netrunner Rules of Play rulebook, page 6 states:
The Corporation has no remote servers at the beginning of the
game. The Corporation creates remote servers by installing
cards. Cards in remote servers are active if rezzed and inactive
There is no limit to the number of remote servers the
Corporation can have at any given time.
The Corporation installs ice to protect his servers. Installed ice
is always dedicated to a particular server and placed in front
of that server. Ice can protect an empty server. Ice is active if
rezzed and inactive if unrezzed.
So you can create a remote server with any applicable card, including Ice and Ice can protect an empty server.
