Indeed, but one last point on caching just to wrap it up. WordPress
does not include persistent caching by design. It used to include
persistent object caching, but it was removed way back in version 2.5
[1]. The reason for this is because there are simply too many possible
ways of caching a website that it's not practical to try to do it in

There are over a thousand plugins tagged with "cache" in the plugins
repo [2], which demonstrates the breadth of caching that's possible.
Plugins are the ideal way to add caching to a site and WordPress has a
powerful object cache API for just this purpose.
