Hello EOS Community,
EOS Rio is an effort to build a Block Producer infrastructure and grow the EOS community in Brazil and South America.
Our main physical servers will be in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with cloud-based fail-over nodes in São Paulo. We are in closing terms for our partnership with a local datacenter, which has direct connection with Tier 1 internet backbones, providing low-latency international response.
Our bare metal producing node will be built from scratch being optimized for the task of block production, while a cluster of non-producing full-nodes will provide high-speed and high-availability access to the EOS blockchain for the developers and end users.
Scalability Plans after Mainnet Launch
We plan to add dedicated IPFS nodes for EOS storage on the upcoming releases of EOSIO.
BP node will be initially focused on maximum single-threaded performance and ready to scale to multi-thread following EOS.IO development roadmap.
We will be releasing more detailed infrastructure plans as soon as our partnership is defined.

There are four fundamental concepts that work as guidelines for each and every program, product and project we develop, they are:
- Disruptiveness: The power of technology is transforming the world as we know it through the abundance of data and services based on information and computation
- The value of decentralization: Blockchain is making society more collaborative, decentralized, with common objectives that are validated by all
- Rethinking work: Artificial Intelligence is removing mechanical work from the equation and returning value to creativity, empathy and interpersonal relations
- The awaken of entrepreneurship: support nonconformists to engage on innovation by connecting talent, technology and capital to create disruptive solutions to unsolved problems
