One way to get better performance on Dreamhost is to use their VPS solution. VPS (or Virtual Private Server) is a hosting solution for higher performance website needs. What Dreamhost brings to the table is a semi-managed VPS solution rather than the raw Linux VPS solution offered by other hosting providers. That's one of the advantages of using Dreamhost, another is that they allow dynamically resizing the VPS memory allocation on the fly any time you want. And they offer an API so that software can change things such as memory allocation.
