Bitfolk and Bytemark do affordable hosted VMs in the UK if you're happy
to admin a box, disk space might be a price issue if you need more than
20GB or so. Linode do the same thing in the US, which works out cheaper
if you don't mind the lag.

As a matter of fact, I've been looking for the same thing myself, albeit
for internal use - machine which can be RAIDed, with a low power
footprint and can be used to run an Intranet, SVN repo, MySQL, internal
DNS, backup daemon and what not, so all advice gratefully received.
