I got to know about this today, via this post:
Hello Planet Python (seen via Planet Python).
The SageMath Cloud (beta) is a new development by William Stein, a professor of mathematics at the University of Washington, who started the SageMath project.
I had blogged about Sage earlier, here:
Calculize and Sage Notebook, online math tools
So today I signed up for a free account on the SageMath Cloud and then tried to enter and run a simple Python factorial program. After a hitch or two (it's beta), it worked.
Here is a screenshot of the factorial program in SageMath Cloud (click image to enlarge):
And here's a screenshot of the result of running "python factorial.py" in the command-line box of SageMath Cloud (click image to enlarge):
Here's a post that I found, by the creator of SageMath Cloud, William Stein himself, talking about his work on it. He mentions using ZFS and plans to use Google Compute Engine for the SageMath Cloud:
