Randal Schwartz has reported that he's very happy running FreeBSD VM
They also offer OpenBSD and "most" Linux distros. Currently not
accepting new orders due to hardware limits, but saying they'll gear-up
by Dec 7th. I am anxiously waiting to give them a try!
There are others offering BSD VM's, but these guys seem to have the best
prices and some cool features (like serial console login over SSH).

It looks like they offer this as well (out of LA), but I haven't looked
into it, as I have no need for that service right now.
