Migrate Microsoft Access database to the cloud

If possible, what is currently the best way to migrate a fairly simple  access database to the cloud?
Database consists of 5 tables, 5 forms and some vba routines.

I prefer a Google Apps integration, but am also open to superior suggestions ...

Access 2010 can use and work with Azure. Access 2007 can work directly with Sharepoint. Earlier versions cannot really do this without moving to SQL Server based storage.

Note also that this technology is in it's infancy, so be sure that the current framework will do all that you need before making a decision. Also be sure that you FULLY understand what is happening with this (i.e your data is stored on a remote server somewhere - NOT on your local machines).

If you truly want to be in the cloud, you'd use Office 365:
