Thanks ergo. I hadn't thought of using a SSD - I inhereted the setup I have now. I actually just negotiated a new 2 year contract with the vendor. I could probably get modifications without and issue.
Digging in now. I'll share what I learn here.
First up. Developing a cron job to remove revisions of posts on a regular basis.
Second learn more about how to measure I/O on the database. Any thoughts on using performance_schema ?
