Working Towards a Faster Cytobank

In the past few months, the Cytobank Development Team has made numerous backend changes with the aim of improving performance speeds. We are happy to report that, as a result, analysis on Cytobank has sped up significantly.

Depending on your specific datasets, time to get to your results may be up to 10x faster!

What has changed?

We have put a great deal of effort into making queries and calculations more efficient within illustrations. This includes improved caching mechanisms to reduce load times and optimized memory usage to better handle large experiments.

Additionally, performance issues that became evident during peak usage times were addressed by improving the way Cytobank handles simultaneous analyses.

Finally, general optimizations have been made around the site – you’ll notice that the site is much more responsive, and page load times are much quicker.

Have you noticed the new improvements? Do you have any suggestions as to areas you’d like to see run faster? If so, comment below or send us an email – we’d love to hear from you.
