Based on the results of that simple test I built a stand alone server on an HP Proliant DL360.  Everything from a software standpoint should be the same, but the performance on the real hardware is TERRIBLE.  A simple index page on the server hardware takes almost a minute to load, while the same loaded from the laptop takes less than a second.

It's strange. Could you make a debug log ?
