Drupal 7.x Performance Guide

This guide lists performance practices for Drupal 7.x. As a general rule, be sure to install Drupal on a server with ample resouces, e.g. plenty of CPU, RAM and a solid state drive (SSD). We recommend using Memcached to offload Drupal's cache tables to RAM memory, which brings about a single most effective performance improvement.
