One hour? Seriously?
Then your system is broken, this is really not normal.
Even with reiserFS I had never such bad startup times.
Not even 5 Minutes.
DB access has been improved already and this is not what slows down the 
startup so much, we don't query a lot during the application starts.

I really would consider to try another filesystem, or run a check (with 
badblocks if possible), maybe the partition you use is about to die?
