Why does Shiny Server Open takes longer than local?

Hi!

I have an app that takes about 2 seconds local, but when I host it in a Shiny Server Open in a Ubuntu Virtual Machine from Azure it takes about 6 seconds to load. I would like to understand why this happens and how can I reduce that extra time?

This is my session info in the virtual machine:
