Any faster way than a db file to store and retrieve hashes ?

sorry about that. So here a more detailed question.

I have a hash table with roughly 1 millions keys. I am looking for
the fastest way to store and retrieve this hash. After retrieval
the hash should remain a normal perl hash and not be tied to anything.

What's the best way to do this ? Is it Storable ?
