Rentman is now faster

Your Rentman workspace just got a speed boost. Let us show you how we did this — we promise not to get too technical. 

Whenever you perform an action in Rentman, a request is sent to a server and returns with a reply. For a good experience, you want consistently low delay (latency) in these requests. Before, we used a method called Http1 that sends and receives one request at a time. We now moved to Http2, which allows multiple requests at the same time. So, instead of loading one request at a time, your browser now loads multiple elements simultaneously. 

This new Http2 is faster across continents, and also compresses your requests, making your data do fewer round-trips to the server. On average, the transmission speed of a server request is now improved by 30% to 40% for our users in Europe.

Extra good news for you — You will likely experience a much faster Rentman workspace. In the coming weeks, we are opening up new server hubs closer to you. Whenever you do an action in Rentman, a request is sent to a server and then returns with data. The closer your server, the less time requests take. This means the transmission speed of a server request is increased by 40% to 80% for this region.
