Geography doesn't matter, upload and download speeds do. Run a speedtest from both the server itself and the client, let us know what those numbers are.
Also, post the specs on your hardware and OS running FMS15. EG Windows 7 doesn't run server as well as windows server 2012 in my experience.
As for suggestions, please provide more info there as well:
1) How are container contents being stored? Inside the file, as a reference, or as external storage?
2) If external storage, is that secure storage? (time to encrypt/decrypt files is a factor)
3) Do you have the setting for storing thumbnails set?
4) Are there any record/layout/field triggers running that you know of, or maybe that you don't? (open script debugger in FMPA to see).
Thanks. For ping times, geography sometimes does matter. It's a hosted server, virtual, that is. Windows Server 2012 R2. 64-bit OS, 2 cores. It says 4 GB RAM... don't know if it holds true for a VM. To clarify: 1: I have tried storage inside the file, and external - both secure and not. That's what I meant by "container fields, regardless of type". Did not try only reference. I did it in an existing table, but with 3 new fields. 2: See 1. It took the same time, almost exactly. 3: Manage Containers - Thumbnails is set to Generate and store... Was set to Temporary, now I will try Permanent. But the file has not been closed/opened during the time we had the issue. 4: No. At least no script is firing. There is 7 stored calcs, seemingly simple, and the usual very simple auto-enter fields, very few and simple. I can try with a new table, but I believe a completely new file has been tried as well. If I did not make it clear: The upload times are equal for large and small files!
