To be fair, reading though Azure pricing structue, their FAQs and 'learn more' documents don't make it clear that you need to pay extra for redundancy. Cloud services have always been sold on the idea that they are distributed and that the provider handles all the maintenance, load balancing etc.

This all makes it sound like Borkzilla are selling 'off site data center' services as if they are full cloud services. But then, when have they not overhyped everything they sell.
