- Bandwidth: the instances being used come with 1000TB per month.
This has been set as the cap in the torrc file so each instance can
in theory use all 1000TB before it stops passing traffic.

1000TB?
I guess you actually mean 1000 GB (=1TB)...?

You definitely should consider going somewhere with unmetered traffic,
since 1TB / month isn't a lot. The relay will hit the cap fast and
won't run for most of the month? IMHO this model doesn't scale well
with digital ocean's pricing.

You would be able to achieve a far bigger impact if you crowd source
bigger unmetered instances.. where you add an instance per sponsor.
Obviously that has to be transparent to the sponsor.


- Each relay is SSD based (20gigs), comes with 1 "cpu" (these are
virtual instances) and 512mb of RAM

Do you have experience with running relays on 512MB of RAM?


- As far as running two relays on one instance,

given the limited available memory you probably don't want to run two
instances


- In all honesty, the MyFamily option is something that I didn't
think would really apply to this as the goal is to never actually
login to these boxes.

You don't want to manage more than a hand full of relays without
central management. "never actually login" is IMHO not very realistic
long term.

Yes, sorry, 1TB a month :)

I have been running my own personal relay on one of their 512MB instances for a bit over three months without issue (famous last words). CPU usage usually hovers around 10-15%. On that relay I set AccountingMax to 100 GB of traffic per day just to make sure it didn't blow out in a single day and then sit idle the rest of the month. I restarted it awhile back and looking at the logs it shows:

"Tor's uptime is 17 days 0:00 hours, with 637 circuits open. I've sent 370.11 GB and received 369.43 GB."

Your suggestion for one big server with multiple clients on an un-metered account might be cool...
