Old setup 27 ms ping
New setup 75 ms ping
The better hardware is being throttled by the 3x latency of the new setup's network. Latency is a real killer for FMP.
Your new setup's network is worse than the old one for databases.

Thanks Vaughan, latency would certainly solve the riddle, since that is the one spec that is inferior on the new setup.
I am going to get ahold of a hosted Mini closer to home, with less latency, and test.
I've heard this term for years and always took it to mean 'delay' bit this time I looked it up:
From my limited testing (a couple of versions ago) Filemaker makes many callbacks to the server for which it has to wait for a reply. The extra latency is likely the issue. I semi-confirmed this once by opening a small database remotely over Satellite, just note: don't try doing this over satellite with a 1.5 second latency.
If I remember right it was several minutes before the database opened.
