    If you really care about optimising this, you need, as other traders pointed out, a cache. Caches are a way of ensuring that the data you query stays in memory on a separate machine so you don't have the delay to disk & to commit. Things like memcached are created for this exact purpose. If you care about optimisation, look into it and other options. This is not a simple problem. Distributed systems like these are a whole area of work and research, so it won't be as simple as just swapping a DB, but if you care about performance, this is the path you have to go down eventually.

    Most of our refactoring was simple: making hard-coded values configurable, or turning certain features on or off depending on environment. Sending email through SES meant specifying an SMTP hostname and credentials, and in some cases upgrading email delivery to use TLS for improved security. We introduced Memcached to cache database query results and server-side rendered views.
