The context I had in mind was for computationally heavy queries that are necessary for the page to render — I don’t think people typically use Celery for that type of thing.

Also, most systems already have a secondary follower database for backup purposes, so using it for read-only operations doesn’t require spinning up an entire additional instance, and can decrease load on the primary database.
