[Melbourne-pm] Web provider for Catalyst applications

G'day everyone,

A client of mine has some Perl and Catalyst applications she'd like to move
to another hosting provider and has asked me for some advice.  Although I can
suggest some great US companies which offer Catalyst out of the box on virtual
servers etc, I'm having some difficulty finding anyone in Australia who does so
as well.  At the moment having an Australian ISP is a requirement, with a
preference for an east-coast main office.

We are willing to consider a VPS package which provides root access, as I'm very
happy to do the Perl and Catalyst installation if required.  However I'm not
planning on being her long-term system administrator, so I'd like a plan which
includes general system maintenance including keeping Perl, Catalyst and the
database software up to date.  We'd be even happier for shared hosting so long
as Perl 5.8.x and Catalyst were available.

Price is obviously a concern, but I am happy to giver her quotes of anything up
to $100/month, ($1200/year).  I don't know that she'd pick something that high,
but I'm determined to give her options.

Can anyone recommend a business which is going to be able to fulfil these needs?

All the best,
