SQL 2014 will include a cool feature so you can add a replica on Azure. The replica will run on a VM on Windows Azure IaaS that is autmaticly created for you through a Wizard in SQL Studio.

Main benefits
• Easily deploy one or more replicas of your databases to Windows Azure
• No need for a DR site (rent, hardware, ops)
• Use these replicas for Disaster Recovery
• Workloads (reads/backups)
