CDS speed vs dynamics db speed

We are planning to build several canvas apps.


Has anyone experience of connecting the canvas app with CDS and Dynamics DB? How do they compare in performance ? Is CDS faster then dynamics db?

Re: CDS speed vs dynamics db speed

Hi @Kran,

The data process speed of the CDS is faster than Dynamics DB within PowerApps.

The CDS acts as an embedded data source within PowerApps itself, which would be processed faster than Dynamics Entity data source.

In addition, the user @ILoveSP has faced similar issue with you, please check the response wihtin the following thread:
