How fast is the IFS, really?

Today I saw an interesting presentation on modern server latency.

L1: 3 cycles
L2: 14 cycles
RAM: 250 cycles

Disk: 41.000.000 cycles
Network: 240.000.000 cycles

The Tredix IFS stores all data in-memory (RAM). Any XML source data is really just a transport format. We replicate it into memory, rewriting the data for optimal memory access, and even cache read access intelligently on top.

Can your DBMS deliver suggestions, full text, or geographic search results in milli- or microseconds? No need to answer ... How about result sets like Did you Means or geo clustering. OK, never mind.

So how fast is the IFS really?

Lightning fast.
