In addition to what Pieter said, it works well on Azure, but if you are running
a registry, we'd strongly recommend not putting all your nameservers in a
single AS or a single cloud.

While rare, Azure and AWS outages have been known to happen. The knock-on
effect for a registry, even if a niche one, is large.

Note that Microsoft also splits out its own DNS over different ASes.

Good luck!
