in reply to Perl solution for storage of large number of small files

How are the 'files' keyed?

Is lookup always by name or are there other factors involved?

What are the minimum & maximum sizes? Are these predictable or are you likely to get occasional files that break those limits?

Do you need single or multiple concurrent access to them?

    32 chars names, lookup is always by name, full reads no seeks inside.

    Files can be everything from 5-500K of data...

    Concurrent writes to the storage, but never on the same file (as everything is passed through an index, serializing events, see above reply)

    Sounds like you have an interesting solution in mind...
