Neo Technology - A new mySQL company but noSQL

The startup company for today is maybe a sleeping giant. Neo Technology is probably not the most exciting name but I have feeling that these guys are onto something important in the area of database engines. Neo Technology is more known in the Java open source areas under the Neo4j logo and the community under which it is being developed. Neo Technology is focusing on databases that are much more efficient for semi-structured data than traditional SQL. Neo is a is a graph database based on an embedded transactional Java persistence engine storing data structured in graphs rather than in tables. For those readers that would like to read more technical details around this subject, read the whitepaper, In todays webservice and internet networked data world, the Neo database technology can become a significant improvement over the commonly used approach, a JBoss (r) webserver running using MySQL (r) database. The Neo Technolgoy company has been working on this for a number of years already, I know it takes a lot of time to fine tune the development of database engine, I was part of introduction of SQL based real time databases in telecom systems a long time ago. Neo Technology is a Swedish startup company.
