Locally Hosted Google App Engine (WebApp Framework / BigTable)

I have been playing with Google App engine a lot lately, from home on personal projects, and I have been really enjoying it. I've converted a few of my coworkers over and we are interested in using GAE for a few of our projects at work.

Our work has to be hosted locally on our own servers. I've done some searching around and I really can't find any information on using the WebApp framework and BigTable locally.

Any information you could provide on setting up a GAE-ish environment on a local Windows server would be much appreciated. I know GAE is much more than just the framework and BigTable - the scalability, propogation of your application/data across many servers are all features we don't need. We just want to get the webapp framework and BigTable up and running through mod_wsgi on Apache.

Well, BigTable you will not be able to run locally. If you are looking for something with similar performance characteristics I'd look into the schemaless 'document-oriented' databases.
