This is a big subject…but the brief answer is database-driven sites if done properly are quite snappy. As an example look at Amazon site…tons of data being pulled and the pages load quickly. Just depends how well you design it.

Database-driven sites are commonly seen on online banking sites where you can log in (by entering your user name and password) and check out your bank account balance. Your bank account information is stored in a database and has been connected to the web page with programming thus enabling you to see your banking information.
