On the Ibuildings techPortal today there's a new tutorial from Rupert Jones showing you how to get the best performance from Magento with a set of technologies tailored for just that.

Following our earlier entry about installing Magento Enterprise, we thought it would be appropriate to follow up with some tips for getting more from your Magento installation. One of the major criticisms leveled at Magento is its speed; many complain that it is far too slow. In this article we'll go through some steps you can perform to fine-tune your server to allow Magento to run more smoothly and more quickly in a production environment.

Among the technologies they recommend are things like memcached, mod_expires, APC, gzip and MySQLTuner.
