I know about these.  I don't recall seeing that name, though.
I call them rented virtual servers.

What surprises me is your statement that the client that rents the
server can't install the operating system in it.  Last I checked,
Amazon AWS would let clients install any system.  That was 15 years
ago so maybe things have changed for the worse.  I am too overloaded
to go around checking things again to see if anything changed.

It would be nice to set up a page rating these companies,
but first we should bring our ratings of forges up to date!
