LevelDB isn’t the fastest kid in town

SQLite4 is faster:

The default built-in storage engine is a log-structured merge database. It is very fast, faster than LevelDB, supports nested transactions, and stores all content in a single disk file.

How much faster, or faster for what they don’t say.

So this brings the speed demons to three:

It will of course be exciting to see how fast they actually are on realistic workloads.

Wouldn’t it be nice if all three were storage engines for SQLite4?  Allowing for a good comparison to be made.

Tokutek have a simple key-value store engine that seems to be close to a 1:1 match for slotting into SQLite4.

What’s exciting you the storage engine front?
