I'm probably being dense, but I don't get your argument. NuDB hashes the value
to use as a key, from what I understood. If you have a large value, the write
will be much faster than with random 4k IOPS, no?

For reference, on my i7 4770k running Win 8.1 a 1TB 960 Pro has about 1700MB/s
sequential write speed and 150MB/s 4k random write, both at QD1.
