"Priced, of course, so that nobody using will ever be able to compete with Azure, which in turn is still more expensive than running a roll your own"

Erm, no - no it isn't. Unless you employ only third world monkeys, bought your infrastructure at Cash Convertors, and host it under the stairs with Harry Potter, Azure is far far cheaper than building, hosting and running your own.

Azure revenue is about to overtake Amazon - It's hardly going to be that popular if it cost more than DIY!
