In some cases it may also be an option to simply reduce the number of 
test methods within the test classes.

For instance we have some tests with several methods, each of them with 
one search operations. If we combine them and add good assertion 
messages for each step, we will reduce the run time without loosing 
much. The question is whether it is really necessary to have a fresh 
server for each operation.
