Due to the strongly increased volume of the data hold at the HALO-Database it was needed to adapt the bandwidth of the network connection. In the past download times of up to one hour occurred for some "bigger" files. Thanks to the work of system and network administration the HALO-Database network link provides now 20 Mbit/s for upload and download that gives the users 10 times faster performance compared to the past.
