Given the data rate above, this sounds like they're quoting a shared
nothing data model on a cluster, not a single host setup.  You are
interested in a single host setup, correct?

Did you ask for a contact at their customer's organization so you could
at least attempt to verify these performance claims?  Or did they state
these numbers are from an internal test system?  With no way for you to
verify these claims, they are, literally, worthless, as this vendor is
asking you to take their claims on faith.  Faith is for religion, not a
business transaction.
