I'm new to cloud/virtual hosting and having a difficult time finding much useful information on google about this question.
Are there any reputable hosting providers out there, aside from hosting.com, who allow you to upload and manage your own vmware server virtual machines, rather than providing you with their standard images?
Is this a viable option for scaling a web application in transition between shared and dedicated hosting? Any major downside?

After talking to some reps I'm getting the impression that these services are highly overpriced. Is this typically the case?
