RDS services and Exchange in the cloud

Hi, looking for some guidance....
I have a customer who is looking for hosted Exchange and RDS services, preferably in the cloud. Does anyone know of a provider that will do this with an exiting domain? Looking at 1and1 but they don't specifically seem to do RDS on Windows 2008R2 or 2012R2. Am I best to go with Office 365 for the Exchange/Outlook and have RDS elsewhere?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated - this is a small business consisting of a few solicitors located in different places around the country and who travel.
Many Thanks.

I don't think you will find RDS, as that is pretty resource intensive.
Virtual Hosted Desktop is pretty easy to find.

However for the last two clients who wanted to do this, I built them an environment.
Single server, with VMWARE. Multiple virtual machines as a DC/Exchange server and as an RDS Server. For added showing off, I had it setup as an RDP gateway coming in through the Exchange server, so it required a single IP address.

Sorry for the delay - question got lost in the myriad of IT related hell I seem to spend my life in!
I'm going to do something similar to the above, with a VM environment at the end of a fibre link.
Many thanks.
