Outdated statistics are also a possible source for performance degradation. You could run EXEC sp_updatestats on the database using Management Studio to update the statistics.

comment Move database files if database runs
You could do a backup and restore that one on the remote machine, if it's just for offline reporting or some consistency checks that you were mentioning. The backup could be done without having any downtime. You'd just have some load on your server.

comment MySQL table design / architecture, table is too big
Values in TEXT columns are not stored in the row buffer, but nonetheless get stored in the database at some other memory location (depending on storage engine). Including TEXT fields in your queries might give you performance problems (see: stackoverflow.com/questions/2883867/…)
