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.

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.
