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.
