Performance Issue Update
We have significantly improved create and open times for projects while the system is under heavy load. We will continue to monitor the system and are working on further improving overall system performance. Thank you for your patience as we tracked down and removed the bottleneck in the system.
We were experiencing intermittent performance issues with RStudio Cloud. Under heavy load (i.e. when many people are using the system), it could have taken 5 minutes (or more) to create or load a project.
