just a reminder: to run a tor relay you need a good CPU (newer then 2011 bc of AES in ASIC) and 1 GB HDD + 1-2 gig of ram. Basically the cheapest shit they have. I ran Exists on Scaleways Atom CPUs, worked :)

You don’t want an upsell to a shiny fancy 8 core Xeon with TB of SSD storage.

Good luck finding new Datacenters!
