Neo4j and SQL Server 2008 R2

Lately, I've been researching graph databases (NOSQL) as an alternative to traditional relational databases. The performance increase from a graph database compared to a relational database is phenomenal. To get my website rolling, I'm planning on using SQL Server 2008 R2 with the Microsoft Entity Framework. Once the data models are in place, I can then work on writing a SQL to graph database server application for migrating my data model into a graph database. There are several .NET libraries available for interfacing with Neo4j's REST API and the data migration should be trivial. My database migration tool will consist of using the Entity Framework to connect to SQL Server 2008 R2 and one of the .NET frameworks for manipulating Neo4j's REST API. I'll continue to post updates as they become available.
