Alternatives to AWS

I am looking for alternatives to AWS for cloud hosting.

We have a smaller client that is looking to move 3 Windows virtual machines to a cloud hosted solution, so AWS may be overkill.

We are also looking at Rackspace and US Signal as alternatives.

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Sean

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, Azure was another we looked at.  Forgot to mention this in the original post.

May I ask what you mean by "overkill"? Amazon's services seem to be pretty cheap.

Depends on monthly budget.

For example, If you slice up a physical machine into other physical machines using LXD + VirtualBox + Windows, then your monthly cost is only monthly machine lease, as LXD + VirtualBox are free.
