I have an out-of-the box set up on the trial plan and it is infuriatingly slow - not so slow that I won't use it. Just slow enough to be consistently annoying.
Will this system be faster if I host it on my own server? Or is the default hosted option considered "as good as it gets"?
It takes ~10 seconds for the dash to load. Maybe 1-2 seconds for a typical box widget to move or open. Even hitting edit on this message took 1 second to load!
It can be, if your server is of a decent spec, Jira is well configured and your networking fast between the server and client.
Cloud is usually slow because of network latency - Jira puts quite a lot out over the network, so if you have a slow one (even a fast network that is a long way away from the computers actually running your Cloud service will be slower), then yes, Cloud will seem slower.
