Hetzner are pretty good but are not a 'cloud' provider. I have been 
hosting with VPS.net for over a year now and you get good performance, 
reliability and support from them for the average £10 per node.

Also, you get free (as in beer) SSL certificates from Comodo!

Just my 2p - but any company where you can talk directly to the (wo)man 
in charge is a good thing in my book :-)
