Are other plugins in use, such as WP Super Cache?
Is Squid (Caching proxy) in front of your Apache server an option?
Can the cloud site make external MySQL calls? You can create a VPS or dedicated/managed server at Rackspace to get around the 500 connection limit and point the wp-config to a server elsewhere.

Thanks for the idea, but Rackspace Cloud Sites does not let me make changes to the mysql. Rackspace Sites is a shared LAMP stack with minimal options, but no support requirement on my end.
it is a different option then the Rackspace cloud sites, which gives you a virtual server. All I get is FTP access and .htaccess for Apache and no real changes to MySQL.
