Hosted/Cloud windows desktops

Hi.
We are looking for someone to host a virtual QA Lab for us.  I've done a couple hours of Google searches, but keep finding only results for Windows Servers.  We need machines that match end-user machines.  Sure, we could build out a VMWare solution, but surely there is a company somewhere that offers this so we can get a price-comparison point.

It needs to contain desktop versions of Windows Vista, XP, and 7
Images will need to have QTP installed on them.
Testers should be able to request a fresh image on-the-fly (available for their exclusive use within a negotiated SLA timeframe).
Testers would release the image back to the farm when they have completed their tests (could range from a few hours to several weeks)
We may need a dedicated machine with Quality Center on it.

Thanks!!!

It seems that the requirements you are after is a VMware Reseller/Partner that offers the vCloud Director and vSphere Service. We are only starting to see Distributors starting to offer these services, unless oyu host your own Private Cloud.

Thanks guys - those look like the keywords I was looking for.
Too bad the number of vendors that actually offer what we are looking for appears to be zero (or buried on page 5 of Google), at least I'm looking for the right solutions now.
