DatoCMS currently hosts its data centralised in Europe. For us in Australia this causes the uncached query times to be very slow. I’d love to choose Dato as our CMS of choice but the response times, which can be 500-800ms are not acceptable especially when Google is putting a lot of emphasis on website speed with Core Web Vitals. As we cache content on our side, the majority of requests to Dato would be when content is updated so the query cache is cleared.
It’d be great if there was a way to change the region in which a project is hosted. If you are on Google Cloud or AWS then they have a region in Sydney, Australia, which would make performance much better.
I know this would be a large effort to add as a feature, but I’m adding it into this forum in case you get to add it at some time.
