Hello Community 🤗
I’m Nikhil, a Product Manager on the Jira Cloud team working on performance improvements.
Performance is an ongoing journey and we continue to invest heavily in it. We understand the performance of our products is mission critical for you and your teams to move your work forward. The goal of this community post is showcase some of the significant performance improvements we've recently made to Jira Cloud and to share what’s on the horizon.
Faster navigation sidebar, page transitions, and next-gen boards & backlogs
I’ll let the below videos speak for themselves, but over the past few months we've made some very significant performance improvements in Jira Cloud.
The Jira Cloud navigation sidebar now loads 2x faster, meaning you can now get wherever you need to be twice as fast.
Jira Cloud’s project directory now loads up to 10x faster, making it smoother than ever to transition from one project to the next.
Next-gen boards load 1.5x faster and the next-gen backlog loads 1.8x faster, so kicking off your next sprint and moving issues into the 'Done' column will only take a fraction of the time.
We’ve also improved text searches - for example, JQL with text ~ by an average of 2x.
Better performance with hosting closer to you
We recently doubled our Atlassian Cloud footprint, launching new hosting regions in Sydney, Singapore and Frankfurt. This complements our existing regions in Dublin and the U.S. and allows us to host your site closer to where the majority of the content is accessed from, which will only further improve your site's performance. You can learn more about our Cloud reliability infrastructure here.
A continued focus on performance
There are a lot more exciting performance improvements on the horizon. For example, you may have caught our recent announcement at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference about the new Jira Cloud for Mac app, which is going to provide a lightning fast Jira experience right from your desktop.
You’ll continue to see and experience performance improvements across Jira Cloud in the weeks and months ahead. In the meantime, thank you for your continued support and please keep the feedback coming!
