+1, We can show minimum data and give detailed view on-demand. But I think
we need to support experiment search based on some criteria and develop an
index for each search criteria, because if I ran jobs for 6 months and I
would never want to get all my experiments, even thought we make it super
fast will minimum data.

ex: I want to search the experiments I ran last week, or with some text
base search.

We can use the above solution Saminda suggested in searching too.
