We have to bulk upload ~50.000 pictures.. Averge size ~ 30 kB
At least each upload takes 8 seconds. 

Is this normal?

Has anyone significant better reponse times?!!


Suggestions to improve the response times are appreciated!

I find it VERY slow too. I intend to have a scheduled task run to do this for well over 1000 images and think it may be unworkable due to the speed. Would welcome advice too.



Just a thought but do you proxy HTTPS traffic in any way to the Office 365 endpoints?  8 seconds doesn't seem bad but I guess it is when you have 50,000 pictures to process.
