A french company here is working on several points of interest for you,
I'd say. They provide dedicated server renting and are working on their
own OpenSource cloud solution, so there's nothing mysterious about it,
and you can even run the software in your own datacenter(s).

OK, granted, the company's french and their site too, but the OpenSource
cloud solution is in english and the code available in public git
repositories (and tarballs).
