Moved my site to Windows Azure

Since a few months I was contemplating on moving my http://www.gtopala.com domain from HostGator to Windows Azure Websites.

HostGator was pretty decent, but above all cheap. And you know you can't have "fast", "reliable" and "cheap" in the same sentence.

HostGator's customer service and quality of services has gone down since they got acquired by EIG.

As a platform, Azure already had his problems. But I'm confident enough that Microsoft put enough eggs in this basket to build my online presence upon it.

Who do I rely on for hosting my stuff?

And now for the techies amongst you, these are the providers I trust my precious data to:
