Can you put some criteria on 'better'/'faster'. What throughput are you expecting? How many requests per second will you have to handle? What is the timing of your current method? What size/type machine will you be running on? Is data being accessed from a database which may influence the timing? So you need to give some specificity of what your requirements are.

You can probably get faster (but maybe not better) with a plug-in, but I would assume that it would also be more effort.
