[Microsoft's cloud platform](http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/) WindowsAzure has ec2-like features of creating custom virtual disks.

Would it be possible to push NetBSD onto this platform?

Yes !

Kimihiro Nonaka (nonakap@) did the port in a [branch](https://github.com/IIJ-NetBSD/netbsd-src/compare/master...nonakap:nonakap/hyperv) on github.
