2.3 isnt due till near the end of the year and I wouldn't rely on that to be the magic bullet to all the speed issues but it should make things a bit less bulky.

I have to agree, it takes extremly long! I tried it with different systems (local and public webservers) and different browsers and always the same behavior.

I like the idea and functions behind silverstripe and would like to use this CMS for a big company webpage but with this loading time it's sadly no perspective.

Are there any ideas or workarounds to make the backend faster?

Thanks and best, Bjoern

Do you have mod_deflate enabled in your Apache2 installation? This will mean that certain content types like javascript or even images are transferred with gzip-compression, which makes a huge difference. At the moment we're not doing any minification or on-demand loading of javascript as well, so there's lots of opportunity to improve still.
