Another thing you can do is store both page "renders" as well as database 
results in http://memcached.org/ blobs and pull from those in intelligent ways 
(you can creatively mix and match "live" stuff with cached stuff and you can 
make pages expire in defined hours via your cache class or even a crontab).

We also add another layer in that if a blob exists in the memecached but not 
locally, we save it locally for the next hit. Depending on your hardware though 
the Gigabit/Fiber might be faster access than a local HD/SSD/RAM disk, so YMMV.

We use LAMP and our site gets > 30,000 hits per SECOND on two servers and 5
