DreamFactory provides a highly efficient direct connection to a dedicated MySQL database or any other data source you add, like your own SQL, NoSQL, file storage, or other REST APIs that your app needs.
This type of architecture delivers excellent performance; most document exchanges take about 1/4 second. All requests and responses are automatically compressed with content encoding, which results in about 95% less network traffic. The BLOB storage interface has access to the server hard disk, or proxy access to S3 and Azure. Your speed will also vary depending on your cloud server and network characteristics.
