Unanswered: Announcing Matisse, the Post-Relational SQL Database
Matisse (www.matisse.com), the ultimate database for .NET and Java, is an innovative Post-Relational SQL database for .NET and Java environments that natively supports Objects and XML. The Matisse database represents an outstanding solution for database architects confronted with complex business or scientific modeling needs.
Matisse greatly simplifies the architecture of applications, removing the need for an Object-Relational mapping layer and the severe limitations that come with it. This feature alone cuts the length of the application code by 30% to 50%, thus paying off in terms of faster time-to-market due to shorter database development cycles, lower TCO due to lower maintenance requirements, and higher overall database performance.
To leverage existing corporate expertise in relational databases, Matisse Software embraces the SQL standard to operate on semantic networks of information instead of being limited to manipulating two-dimensional tables. This powerful approach opens new frontiers for building application and services that manage complex business processes and rich data.

Well, with no transaction logging (and no point in time recovery) as well as not a lot of security (you are either DBO, or read-only. No middle ground), I should darn well hope it is fast.
