Any pointers to free cloud-based geoweb hosts? Use case: To display a basic interactive web map in Leaflet/ OpenLayers with data hosted in PostGIS served by GeoServer. I am looking at something very close to the OpenGeoSuite since I am playing with that at the moment already. [This is basically a teach-yourself webmapping exercise and there are zero personally hosted server resources on my sleeves].

I searched for the same free cloud based geoweb services and came up empty over a year ago. Ended up using www.webfaction.com for about $10 a month. They supply PostGreSQL, PostGIS and all of the necessary libraries. Had my IT nephew install GeoServer and all is well, so far.
I'm fairly new to web/map development and I found the support to be most helpful and quick to respond.
You could try arcgis online. There is a free level for non commercial use

You are probably out of luck for "free" but you could also check out HostGIS. http://www.hostgis.com/home/. We've has sites running with them for years. Good support and all round nice guy running it.
