If the free/libre open source software movement is important to you
and you'd rather not financially support the likes of Amazon, Google
or Microsoft, https://vexxhost.com/ (a Canadian provider though they
do also have a presence in a USA facility now) runs a very
up-to-date deployment of OpenStack and has amazingly responsive and
knowledgeable customer service. Not only do they run their service
on free software, but they participate heavily in the community
developing it and contribute valuable hosting resources to a lot of
other free software communities too. I'm a very happy customer.
