Jacob Kaplan-Moss has written python bindings which have worked for me  
(so far, once RSCloud got my auth issues sorted out):


So far I have been happy w/ Rackspace Cloud.  IIRC the minimal server  
is $0.015/hr which is about $11/month, cheaper than my current  
SliceHost server and comparable in compute power (RAM, storage, GHz,  

Jacob and another guy gave a Django Deployment Workshop at OSCON last  
month where they deployed six or so Ubuntu servers on Rackspace Cloud  
(DB, load balancer, app servers, etc.), demoed Fabric for deployment  
(also cool), many other things as well, and then tore everything  
down.  Total cost to them was probably less than $0.50.
