I have a use case where my destination array of my primary storage array I want to keep in the cloud. Using cloud storage controllers i believe it's possible to have data replication on the remote cloud storage.
Now using microsoft clustering i want to create a cluster of two nodes - Node A and Node B. Both these nodes are in my org premises.
With Node A i connect the local storage array and present a SAN disk to it. This SAN disk is imported into the microsoft failover cluster as a cluster disk.
With Node B I want to connect a virtual disk obtained directly from cloud. This cloud disk is the destination disk (due to the data replication between the two disks they will always be trying to sync) of the primary disk which we connected to Node A.
My Question is whether it's possible to have such a virtual disk carved out from cloud storage which can be included as a cluster disk into microsoft failover cluster. And at the backend act as the destination disk of my local storage array disk.

I didn't quite get your requirement exactly, however I believe either of the following Windows Azure Storage options should help you:
