EOSrock is an EOS block producer candidate. EOSrock is founded by a stellar team of ex-Google, Apple and Cisco engineers, that have built and deployed large-scale cloud infrastructures, distributed-systems, and cryptomining and blockchain development projects.
With geographically distributed teams in blockchain hotbeds Slovenia and Serbia, EOSrock believes it is uniquely positioned to run decentralized block producer nodes with top-notch reliability and scalability. 
In addition to hosting and managing the EOS block producers, EOSrock aims to accelerate the growth of the EOS platform by developing software tools and keeping its innovations open-source. EOSrock promises to conduct itself with honesty and integrity in all actions representing EOS project and EOS community.
EOSrock believes that the EOS ecosystem will solve blockchain performance problems, and accelerate widespread adoption of the cutting-edge blockchain technology.

The preliminary configuration prior to EOS.IO launch is hosted on the Google Cloud Platform. Google Cloud provides high availability, geographic distribution, and almost immediate on-demand scaling. EOSrock has launched primary and backup BP nodes on EOS testnet, with the following server configuration:
With team members in Serbia, Slovenia and US, EOSrock plans to deploy stackable infrastructure in Tier 3 data center environments with highest levels of redundancy and security. The selected hardware surpasses requirements by designing a base configuration and scaling it up and out to match the anticipated number of users and transaction levels.
High availability distributed build-outs insure that in case of a primary BP failure, a failover process to the backup BP node will be initiated with no service impact and downtime.
With one of the team members from the original Google Cloud Platform architecture team, and SW engineer in Lisk producer node role, EOSrock is capable of scaling the largest blockchain networks efficiently and fast. EOSrock will continue to improve performance and redundancy of its infrastructure based on constant benchmarking.
EOSrock will be closely monitoring the processes and hardware across the distributed environments, by using in house built automation tools.
