Any cheers for that offer. Currently I think the powers with the cheque
book are looking at options, or rather said what they want and delegated
scouting for info to me. The initially wanted to use Azure or AWS, but when
we need abut 20+ VM's and with higher specs it gets a bit costly. So
dedicated servers or colocation is the next idea.

We did think of putting a rack in at a customers site, with a leased line,
but do we really want a customer to have physical access to all our (and
other customers) data?
