An interesting idea. Putting my webhosting hat on, I'd be curious to know if
companies have actually found a cost-effective way of creating and maintaining
virtual machines for customers -- every time we've done the math, we've
concluded the difference in cost between a virtual machine and a dedicated
machine would be so small that it wasn't worth offering both solutions.
So over here, the answer is that customers who want absolute security need to
pay for colocation.
