FAQ

The server is slow to respond to requests. Browser rendering is
independent of the server architecture and "slow to be fetched from
the server" sounds like it means low network speed. I'm talking about
the very familiar experience of clicking a link and then waiting,
waiting, waiting for the page to load. You rarely see that happen
with Ebay or Google. It happens all the time with Wikipedia.
This has a lot to do with the latency and speed of the connecting
network. Sites like Ebay, Google, and Amazon are connected
to internet backbone nodes (for speed) and are cached throughout
the network using things like Akami (to reduce latency)...

Akami for services, or better yet, cacheing hardware such as NetCache. Frequently requested data doesn't even have to come from the server disks/database - it's sent from the NetCache.
