Well, actually it is - that particular guy maintains 14,000 transactions 
per second, but with benchmarks that may or may not transfer to 
Mikhail's scenario, and with a quite high-end 7,200 RPM HDD which may or 
may not fit his definition of standard hardware.

That said, these results are still pretty impressive.
