I wanted to highlight the following document to everybody how is considering to install SharePoint in Windows Azure IAAS.
Moreover, I would like to recall to your mind the supported and not supported scenarios of SharePoint and Windows Azure:
- SharePoint 2010 SP1 + CU and onwards.
- SharePoint 2013 RTM and onwards.
- Fast Server over SPS 2010
- WSS 3.0, MOSS 2007.

It's ready to download April 2014 CUs for SharePoint 2013. We added support for SQL Server 2014 :)
CAVEAT => Now the hotfix is not a single file due to the high weight of the cab files. So you have to download the exe file and cab files and put them in the same folder. It's quite easy when you'll click on the hotfix you will see more than one check boxes to be clicked. So clicked all and ,as said. put hem in the same folder.
SharePoint 2013 (Build 15.0.4605.1004)
REMEMBER TO INSTALL FIRST SharePoint 2013 SP1
After installing the updated you should run the SharePoint Config Wizard in every server of the farm.
If SPS 2013 installed you must only install the SPS 2013 CU because it includes the Foundation one.
