We're using Packet.net hosted metal to test automation for private metal (video).  You can use discount code "RACKN100" to get a credit on Packet and try it yourself. At RackN, we've been shrinking our scale deployment platform down to run faithfully on a desktop class system. Since we abstract the network and hardware complexity, you can build automation that scales to physical from as little as 16 Gb of RAM (the same size as Packet's smaller server)....
