[tor-relays] Linode, DigitalOcean

I've got a number of servers on Linode and DigitalOcean that could 
potentially be candidates for relays or bridges as they have a fair 
amount of otherwise unused resources.

However, I wonder if there are enough people running non-exit nodes on 
these providers due to their large scale, such that more doesn't really 
help due to the lack of overall diversity of the network. Thoughts about 
whether running a few Tor relays in these environments is worthwhile?

Neither is friendly enough to run exit nodes, at least as far as my 
purposes go.

And to be clear, my goal is to utilize and share some otherwise unused 
resources, not to buy new servers to dedicate to Tor. While we're also 
debating sponsoring or operating exit nodes, they will be on dedicated 
servers in Tor friendly environments.
