[tor-relays] Linode, DigitalOcean

I used to run several non-exit relays on DigitalOcean, the diversity of their network I find is good enough, I ran several in North America, Europe and Asia so I would say that in my experience, DO at least is fine to use as a non-exit provider. They also have a very good network, you can easily get 120MBps out of them.

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.
