If you have significant write load it can be a very big deal. If you're read-mostly and able to cache a lot, maybe not so much.

A majority of our writes are product updates but they are done directly into azure from a local box. These can't be done from AWS as they go into gbs but that is the only situation we need worry about.

If azure opened it's model up then we wouldn't need to do all this!
