Microsoft via its IaaS platform Windows Azure Infrastructure Service is actively competing against Amazon Web Services (AWS).  Improvements to Azure include improved virtual machine (VM) Image Templates for SQL Server and SharePoint images and roomier VM sizes to accommodate larger memory servers; and a steeply discounted price.  Would this be enough to make you consider changing over to MS Azure?  If not, what other functionalities would you need to see to consider it?
