What I can gather from your post you need a VPS that can handel 3000UV a day, be managed, and for that reason also probably require cPanel and the OS doesn't matter.
I don't think a cloud is really necessary for this although it would be nice I'm sure, I just don't think the budget would be there. Realistically a VPS with 1GB of RAM and some burstable for those peak times I think you should be just fine. Generally you would be looking at ~30-40$ for the managed VPS, +10-15$ for the cPanel -- a total of ~45-55$/month. So I think your good on your budget, now you just need to hop on over to the advertising section and see if you can find any to meet your needs
