Frankly I don't know enough about the "cloud" stuff yet.
edit - so I hope somebody else can give a real answer :).
In theory adapting to Amazon EC2 and Rackspace should be possible, in fact there are some search results on "django EC2". Looks like you can make relational storage work on amazon services and rackspace and askbot relies on a relational database.
At the moment askbot does not support non-relational storage engines and it's not likely to change soon. Switching to that will require quite a deep rewrite - that's what I can tell based on my limited knowledge of App Engine data store, I don't know anything about others. So right now all that is only theory that bounces in head :).
Just putting out links to relevant products:
As far as I know only AppEngine is the only cloud hosting provider that supports django specifically and all I can say is "further research is needed".
Regarding practical hosting solution in general I recommend looking into traditional "django friendly" hosting providers.
Thanks for asking.
