Picking Server Hosting

I have a manufacturer that I am working with that will design a server for us that allows customers to register their DVR's to a cloud based service which prevents the end user from having to go through the process of port forwarding. Basically, the remote user will type in their credentials on a web-site which connects to the cloud based server, and the DVR also sends information to the cloud based server and they "meet in the middle". This is not about cloud based storage. This is just simply there so the customer doesn't have to worry about port forwarding. I have seen this option on other DVR's and IP cameras and think its great.

The manufacturer has sent us the specifications of what type of server they require which I have no problem with. The issue I have is that I cannot host the server at my business location with the dinky internet I have. I don't have many internet options that could support this if it became popular. I would like it to be in a location with some robust bandwidth.

Is anyone doing this and if so, can you send me some recommended services.
