FSFS is a zillion tiny files, so what you can do is

* use FSFS for your repository.

* set vfs_cache_pressure to 0, so inodes will stay in RAM.

* maybe preload the inodes to RAM by running a
    find /path-to-repository > /dev/null
  at boot time.

If you still have lots of available RAM after that,
you could preload even the data to RAM by running a
    find /path-to-repository -type f | xargs cat > /dev/null
