It all depends what you want to do. If you want to host domain names,
email accounts, etc., then probably you will want to try DTC, available
from Debian experimental. It has support for Xen VMs too, and
accounting, invoicing, billing, etc.:
If you are searching for cloud, then probably you should have a look here:
Unfortunately, it doesn't look nice, after the Debian wiki hack, and I
can't edit it, but hopefully, this will change in the near future.
I'm involved in both projects, so I'd be happy to help / get feedback.
