Xsigo was selected from a pool of more than 5,000 companies. The final 50 top businesses were calculated based on how each company scored in a number of areas: the track record of success for the venture-capital investors who sit on the company's board, the amount of capital raised by the company over the last three years, the track record of success for the company's founders and chief executive, and the company's recent valuation growth. As a last component, Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones reporters and editors reviewed and ranked the companies. Overall rank is based on a weighted combination of all five components.

"Xsigo truly is the next big thing," said Ray Lane, partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, a Xsigo investor. "They have the complete package: a stellar executive team with a great track record, a revolutionary technology called virtual I/O that's urgently needed in today's data centers, and great customers that have grown the company's revenue by 200% year-over-year."

"Xsigo has seen major market acceptance of its virtual I/O technology in the hotly contested data center arena, beating out vendors like Cisco in large deals," said Lloyd Carney, Xsigo's CEO. "In the past year we have tripled revenues, launched products that bring groundbreaking innovation to our market, and expanded our marquee customer list to include over 130 customers now in production deployments at hundreds of data centers worldwide."
