Check datapipe.

So far (about a year) they have been dependable. They are FreeBSD friendly.

They have two levels. One where they do most of the work for you (ie
install programs like apache, mysql,etc..) and another where they just
install the OS and give you access. You do all the work beyond that. The
price difference was somewhere in the $500 range so it didn't make sense to
go with the "fully managed".

Last I checked they didn't have any form of KVM.
They backups seemed expensive so we didn't go with them.

My ex company had managed services contract with data pipe. I was not impressed with their expertise and their facilities.
At newrark we had symmetrix EMC frame that was in cage with raised floor completely sagging and every time I would go there I worried about frame going under. Funny but scarry...
