For Python apps: http://www.ep.io/

    ep.io just deploys WSGI applications, offering PostgreSQL and Redis - so
    I think moving your app to another platform should be easy. Django and Flask
    are first-class citizens.

For Python, Ruby and others: http://www.heroku.com/

    I have never used Heroku myself, but I think it's not very different from
    ep.io, it's probably for larger projects.
