ESP8266 + django

Hello guys, i am currently working on a large project which includes:
-pick up measurments from multiple sensors
-proccess them
-upload them on a custom server

So right now i have managed to collect these measurments and i developing a web-site using Django framework. As a server i think i will be using a rasberry pi or some service like linode.

However in the second option i am wondering if it would be possible to connect an arduino to my site using an esp8266 and upload the measurments through a http request on my site-server.

Would it be possible the esp to act like a virtual lets say user who will provide the needed data to the server?

thanks in advance :slight_smile: !
