Windows Azure: Use it for Tiling ?

Cloudenterprise has posted a helpful table comparing Azure with AWS, Google and VMWare.

Clint Brown mentioned in his presentation that it takes ESRI 4 hours to generate tiles for the US portion of their World Street Map layer served out by ArcGIS Online. It would be great if ESRI could put tiling services and caches into Azure, so we could generate tiles more quickly, via the wonders of parallel processing.
