Browsing speed (i.e. seeing thumbnails being generated as you scroll through a channel of content) should not be impacted by the metadata being stored in the AVAIL cloud service as the thumbnails are being generated by the local operating system. If you are seeing slow thumbnail generation as you scroll through content it is more likely to be local processor limitations or local network latency.

If by "browsing" you also mean clicking on Tags in the Filters Panel, then yes, you could see latency as the search is being performed on the AVAIL cloud service and the results returned to the local desktop. One thing to note is that we are currently running the AVAIL service on AWS (Amazon) servers in North America.  We will need to run tests to see if performance is degrading to the point of needing to stand up servers in your market.
