I checked Google App Engine and Heroku but both don't support .NET/C# applications. Even though Google App Engine shows support for Windows Azure, but in the supported languages it doesn't show C# or VB.

Is .NET not supported on Cloud Platform?

You need the right kind of cloud. –  user1249 Jul 8 '12 at 9:45
Google is a company that does not use Windows either in its offices, Google employee are not allowed to use machines with Windows on, I'm not surprised of this, also this proprietary technologies are just a fraction of the web. –  user827992 Jul 8 '12 at 10:38
@user827992 Completely agree. –  RPK Jul 8 '12 at 13:52
@user827992 I expect Google employees working on certain projects(such as Chrome) to use windows, at least for part of their work. –  CodesInChaos Jul 8 '12 at 15:03
@CodeInChaos you need a written authorization to use Windows in Google's offices, Windows it's not completely banned but is really rare to find in Google. A lot of components used by Chrome are also portable and you do not really need a Windows machine for the whole developing process. But we are going OT now, also this is just not only about Google or Google's products, many company develop under 1 OS but deploy on many others. –  user827992 Jul 8 '12 at 15:13

To give specifics of the right kind of cloud (at time of writing):

For a Heroku like experience you might want to look at AppHarbor

And of course Windows Azure (-:

Beyond that anything that supports windows as a virtual machine - or not necessarily even that as a quick google will find you examples of deploying mono projects to Heroku...
