If you deploy to a Windows Azure Web Site, the deployment process is almost identical; it's just a matter of deploying your project to a different destination environment. The hardest part would be if you have a database and it has been accumulating production
data in Windows Azure SQL Database (SQL Azure), you would have to save your data or create scripts to migrate the data to the non-Azure SQL Server database.
If you are thinking about a Windows Azure Cloud Service, the differences are more substantial and would require changes to your Visual Studio solution and project structure.

There is a SYNC feature you can use to synchronise your data between SQL Azure and on-premise SQL server. So the day you think it is not for you, just hook back your website to your on premise SQL Server and move on.
Let me know if you need some indepth explanation or further questions. Hope that helps decide.
