To this days all first tier cloud providers have taken action against the Spectre and Meltdown security vulnerabilities. The cloud giants are better armed to address those issues as they have all been aware of the attack vectors for quite some time. Google has been able to patch their host systems without even rebooting the guests.
Smaller providers were not so lucky but some of them banded together to help each other and share information (Linode, Vultr, DigitalOcean, Scaleway, OVH and Packet). They are still one step behind though.
The date for the disclosure was initially coordinated to be on January 9th but as the news became widely available on Jan 2nd, the major providers decided to take action immediately. Tier 2 providers that are dependent on information from Intel and OS publishers to patch their systems are still struggling to figure out what patches to install.
The performance impact according to Google, Amazon and Microsoft is negligible.
