If I store a site files and DB (mysql files, mysql.sock) on mounted volume on same region with droplet — what about speed? Maybe sites will work slower or db access have high callback?

I want structure like:

/mnt/sites/htdocs/
/mnt/sites/db/
/mnt/sites/etc/

Hm?

It may be slower, but I doubt it.

What you're describing is actually standard, so good for you! You're doing it right.
