GZIP, Timezone and Database

I am evaluating Bluemix - Liberty of Java. It has many features but missing some essentials.

1. The JS and CSS are not served with GZIP compression, this leads 3X slower than a server which has GZIP compression. Just enabling it 3X faster loading.

2. Timezone, we dont have an option to change the runtime timezone, programatically we can change but it leads code modification.

3. Database the MAJOR issue, I am using Postgres you have provided Compose database service. But the problem here is the data transmission over the network. I 2 -6 seconds delay for the data transfer in the network. If you have some runtime or contianer to have Postgres in the same network where Java or any other runtime is running. Then we can avoid this time delay. 2 - 6 seconds is very huge delay. This is the reason i am thinking of moving out of bluemix. Other above issues can be fixed. But database service an essential one is missing.

Please look into it. Thanks!
