SOASTA Session at Cloud Expo

SOASTA, a Bronze Sponsor of 5th International Cloud Expo cloud computing conference, upcoming next month in New York (April 19-21, 2010), has been named by the Wall Street Journal as one of the fifty "hottest" VC-backed firms in the US - the only Cloud player among the seventeen IT companies  listed.

The WSJ rankings were calculated based on how each company scored in the following components: the track record of success for the venture-capital investors who sit on the company's board (Board Ranking); the amount of capital raised by the company over the last three years, in comparison to its peers (Total Equity Ranking); the track record of success for the company's founders and chief executive (Executive Ranking); and the recent growth in the value of the company (Valuation Ranking).

Overall rank was then assigned based on a weighted combination of all five components .
