I’m currently investigating different services (Azure, DigitalOcean, Netlify) for our app to check which fits best for our needs. Netlify is kind of my personal preference but it unfortunately lacks in one critical point: the serving of static assets. All of the three competitors have a immediate server response time, but while the others need like avg. 2s to serve all static files, with netlify we have to wait around up to 10s - which is huge!
Altough it’s only our development build at the moment and the js files might get a better compression in the end, I still find that very suspect. In the example I can share with you, the
app.js weights 3.5MB but took 5.88s to fully load.
I also can share a screenshot where I made 10 tests for each service with google pagespeed and come up with this result:
Would be great if you could me help out with this, since it strongly influences our decision making.
