That's a very good point.  If I was to run in say Azure , AWS and Google I would have a lot more redundancy.  

I am thinking of using MySQL for the backend.  I would have to replicate MySQL?

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!
