I just found a great new project on GitHub that's going to help a lot of Solr and Lucene projects deploy to a cloud infrastructure today.  It's a showcase on how to configure and host Solr and Lucene on Windows Azure:

In this project we showcase how to configure and host Solr/Lucene in Windows Azure using multi-instance replication for index-serving and single-instance for index generation with a persistent index mounted in Azure storage. Typical scenarios we address with this sample are commercial and publisher sites that need to scale the traffic with increasing query volume and need to index maximum 16 TB of data and require couple of index updates per day.

--Microsoft Interop team

The GitHub readme also has 11 setup prerequisites to check out, and you'll also find a link to this more robust tutorial on Solr-Azure interop:

In this tutorial we showcase how to configure and host Solr/Lucene in Windows Azure using multi-instance replication for index-serving and single-instance for index generation with a persistent index mounted in Azure storage.

--Windows Azure Dev Center


In case you forgot (or maybe you never knew), Windows Azure supports Java and not just .NET.  That's why you're able to deploy Lucene, a Java library, on Azure.  Kudos to the Microsoft team for recognizing the importance of Solr and Lucene in many Java applications.
