Oh, I just remembered another one of these I saw, although more
narrowly focused:


In particular, the CNCF Community Infrastructure Lab (CIL) has free
access to state-of-the-art computing resources for open source
developers working to advance cloud native computing. They offer
access to both x86 and ARMv8 bare metal servers.  If you happen to
need some real computing power, and it relates to open source
software, this might be the free capability you’ve been looking for.
For example, it could be used for software builds, continuous
integration, scale testing, or demonstrations.  Dan’s of the opinion
that it’d be sad to see this free capability go unused, and I agree,
so please let them know if you need something like this.  More info



The catch is "for open source developers working to advance cloud
native computing".  Not sure if we can make a compelling argument
there, but testing of test tor networks might be a good use case...
