Is Object storage really appropriate for 100+ PB stores?

Cleversafe (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/09/03/cleversafe_1tb_sec/) has a 10EB object storage concept with a 1TB/sec ingest speed. It suggest to me that object ingest and placement in an object store is slower than file ingest and placement in a file store. Obviously an object has to be hashed and then its location in the object namespace calculated and the data then written - which takes longer than tacking a file on to the end of a file store and updating a folder listing.
