For WAL (I/O which is mostly sequential), the proposed approach isn't
that bad. You can easily get more than 15,000 write transactions per
second, with a single thread. Good luck finding a SSD NAS with a
60 usec round-trip time. 8->
Something which directly speaks SATA or PCI might offer comparable
performance, but SSD alone isn't sufficient.
