If you don't have it already, you will want W3 Total Cache plugin for performance: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/w3-total-cache/ Just follow the recommended settings in the Installation tab there, and you'll improve performance by at least 10x. I was tasked to build an easy-to-edit-by-scared-communication-staff emergency website for the university I work at. In the case of a campus emergency, we can switch our website over to the emergency site, and they wanted it to be able to handle a *lot* of traffic. Out of the box, Wordpress was able to serve about 6800 requests per minute, and with W3TotalCache only partly enabled (I'm not using minify or object caching), it can serve ~98000 requests per minute... more than enough to handle an old-school Slashdotting. @Acheron
