They are only doing 6k writes a second for crying out loud.

And 600k reads per second (as of when this article was written), which seems like an important thing to leave out.

300k reads, which is approaching trivial. You can do that with an array of desktop SSDs. But in reality, it would be almost all in RAM anyways making those reads incredibly cheap.

Right, because no matter how much RAM you put in a machine, access is always the same speed.
