I have not seen much support for PostgreSQL in the cloud.  For some reason the cloud offerings tend to say things like "it may be offered soon" and then only offer MySQL.   If the cloud offering allows you to build your own software you should be okay.

As for performance, it depends on your needs.  "Serious geocoding" is a bit vague.  Its something you will likely have to play with a bit before you can come to any conclusions.  

I have been playing around with Pagodabox a bit, they seem like they can scale as much as I could need, but lack PostgreSQL support of any kind (So postgis is also out).
