You've probably heard by now of Microsoft's entry in the cloud computing race, dubbed Azure. What I didn't know until I saw it this morning on InfoQ was that Microsoft encourages the use of languages and tools other than their official ones. Here's what they say on the 'What is the Azure Service Platform' page:
"Windows Azure is an open platform that will support both Microsoft and non-Microsoft languages and environments. Windows Azure welcomes third party tools and languages such as Eclipse, Ruby, PHP, and Python."
While you and I may think MS says this just for marketing/PR purposes, it turns out they are walking the walk a bit. I was glad to see in the InfoQ article that a Microsoft guy wrote a Python wrapper on top of the Azure Data Storage APIs. Note that this is classic CPython, not IronPython. I assume more interesting stuff can be done with IronPython.
