Have you tried Joyent “High Performance Infrastructure”?

If not, I urge you to take advantage of the Joyent Cloud free trial. Experience the stability of UNIX, a Solaris-based public cloud. Select from one of Joyent's four data centers. Provision a 32 or 64-bit Joyent's own SmartOS-based Chefserver, MongoDB, Hadoop, node.js, Percona, Riak. Or if you prefer your 32 or 64-bit GNU/Linux Debian, CentOS, Fedora, or Ubuntu distribution. Of course, Windows proprietary OS is available, as well.
