    After the above tweaks, better load speeds can be realized by compressing CSS and JavaScript files, breaking the application down into tiers, i.e. web/database or even web/application/database tiers on separate servers.

    And then its time to scale up with more powerful servers, or scale out with load balancing and clustering.
