Great points made - and welcome to the Forum!
I’ve done a few loops round many a boardroom table on the cloud vs local debate. As you rightly point out - you can have as much redundancy as you want in the Datacentre - but what about accessing it in the first place?
As you mention, if you only have 1 firewall / switch / leased line / then there’s a point of failure inbuilt. Just because it’s “cloud” doesn’t mean to say it’s “Safe”
And let’s just overlook the whole local and remote SLAs to go with any architecture.
I do like that Azure is integrating Linux.
The datacentre does sound amazing.
However, my top concern is that OGI can not guarantee a connection between our offices and the datacentre. (Understandably not feasible).
If you had iGels / dumb terminals that connected directly to the cloud and your firewall, switch or internet connection has a fault then you could end up being completely unable to do anything until it is resolved.
Personally, I always want the most redundant solution; local servers synchronising with cloud.
