https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial/ I don't know how good
it is tho.

My previous company has a MSDN subscription, and so we had every month some
small quota or something like that, but as I say, I only played with some
APIs (mainly the ones for storage, to see if we could move several of our
applications to the cloud with minimal changes).

I only know a few cloud services, and it's been some time since I last
looked at them, so I don't know what to tell the guys here heh.

It doesn't look like Azure may be a good candidate then, although since the
contest is going to be for two days it may be good enough if the free
option gives some nice machine...
