[Techtalk] Renting virtual appliances instead of VPSs?

I rent several virtual private servers (VPSs). These are fun, but take
a lot of work to setup right.

Is there any place I can rent a virtual *appliance*? EG, a "virtual
machine" (vmware/Virtuozzo image) pre-configured w/ a Apache/PHP
and/or MySQL and/or tinydns and/or nagios, etc, etc?

It might even be cool to get one nano-appliance configured w/ tinydns,
another w/ MySQL, a third w/ Apache/PHP, etc and have them all talk to
each other.

We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying
to understand and assimilate technology. We feel that resistance to
new ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
