We have chosen to go for 3 dedicated servers in different data centers. The block producer node and associated relays have been placed in Europe(The Netherlands, Germany and Austria). These bare metal servers are a lot more powerful than, for example, a desktop computer of a Raspberry Pi.
Although Cardano is very efficient and runs on this light hardware, it is also necessary to have powerful servers that can handle the speed of the network and can keep up with the full ledger.
