[hcs-d] speed of Drupal site hosted on HCS

I had this problem with the kirkland website. Drupal uses a ridiculous number of mysql queries to render a page - especially as you add more modules. Since hcs has separate sql servers its the network latency that kills the load time - going back and forth between the sql server and the web server several hundred times. To fix you can transition to a server that runs its own mysql db or you can fool around with memcached. 

Also you might benefit from installing the drupal's dev module. It'll tell you what parts are taking the longest to load, number of db queries etc...
