    I am new to windows azure currently we are using VS2008 and SQL Server 2008

    Currently we are using following concepts in SQL Server 2008

    1)      Replication (Transactional replication)

    2)      Integration Service

    3)      SSAS

     All the above things would be supported by Windows Azure?

     We are planning to upgrade our products to Cloud Computing for better performance

    Please suggest me

    with the Windows Azure SQL Databases some of your points will not work. I would suggest that you have a look at the Windows Azure Virtual Machines, where you can set up your SQL Server and work with it as usual - http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/manage/windows/common-tasks/sql-server-on-a-vm/

    Keep in mind that Cloud Computing doesn't mean that you will have better performance. One of its key concepts is high availability. The performance depends on your application.
