The package upload speed from visual studio is dramatically slow. it takes about an hour to upload 300Mb package. Please speed up it.
We are working on improving the deployment performance for services across Azure, including Cloud Services. Please stay tuned.
Through portal its much faster

I am sorry to hear that. Have you tried uploading the package through the Portal. Is the speed better, worse or the same as compared to VS?
