This may be heresy for a bioclusters list, but ..  
Does anyone know if there are yet vendors of on-demand grid
services that are cost-effective compared to installing and
maintaining an in-house computer cluster?  The example
application would be BLAST, so needs include data storage and
updates for frequently changing data in 100 MB .. 10+ GB range.
I've got United Devices and Gateway.com on my list.
