Sustained performance capable of "initial load" inserts to the B-Tree index (sorted on given key (structure)) store of 100 million random records in 35 minutes using a Mac Mini.
i.e. - 47,619 IO per second (IOPS) using commodity personal PC/SSD !
Post load I/Os are at sustained high speed levels. Reading all of 100 million records randomly in minutes. Retrieve in ascending/descending level at the same speed levels.
Parallel Reads are supported with full hardware parallelism where hardware supports it.
