If you're already managing this stuff in-house, then a VPS is probably
your best bet.  I'm a big fan of Linode, they have good service and are
pretty flexible. (I.E. Upgrade/Downgrade package at any time.)

They provide images of the major distros (Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, etc)
out of the box, but you can still roll your own if you want to.
