I've got an application thats really heavy on DB processing - and I'd like to increase speed like 10-fold. Do you have any suggestions/best practices for this?

Yep - try using an SSD server!
Setup a memcache server and push your queries through that first.
Can you share SSD Drive add-on pricing for say 40GB?
We do not currently sell add-on storage.

In most cases where add-on storage is available if it isn't on the local hypervisor there is a large trade-off in terms of performance vs price because of network latency to access the disk.
