well, you can have as many swap files as the OS (and your disk
space) permits, but that won't help you with the memory ...
in other words, if you run out of _memory_, then the system
will start using the _swap_ space and that will slow down
everything, maybe leading to trashing which is not what you
want to have on a vserver host ...
don't forget, the disks are nowadays a few powers slower than
the memory, which is already a few powers behind the cpu ;)
