Azure DNS Private Zones

Azure DNS Private Zones now available in public preview | Blog | Microsoft Azure
"Private Zones obviates the need to setup and manage custom DNS servers. You can bring DNS zones to your virtual network as you lift-and-shift applications to the Azure cloud, or if you are building Cloud-Native applications. You also have the flexibility to use custom domain names, such as your company’s domain name."

AWS has a similar feature:

"A private hosted zone is a container that holds information about how you want to route traffic for a domain and its subdomains within one or more Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs)."

Another AWS standard feature that was recently added to Azure:

Azure has more granular control of placement of VMs with "Availability Sets" (essentially server racks) so it now provides more reliability features.
