What is an "ideal" cloud storage or managed hosting server setup?

My company is looking to get in on the managed services/cloud server hosting side of the business. Think of what Amazon Cloud Services does with their pay as you go servers. I don't have much experience at all with this but have been asked to put some input. What is a standard, reliable, scalable configuration I could suggest?

I'm no IT Architect, just an IT manager but I'd like to be able to contribute something here. The requirements:
1. a reliable rack mounted system
2. 4-8 amps power consumption
3. quad or octo-core CPU server capable of handling about 125 servers from the rack
4. rack should include router/switch, RAID storage, server hardware and a UPS backup.
