Top Cloud Computing Startups of 2009 Selected to Compete Under the Radar

Enterprise CIOs and VCs to Judge Cloud Startups at Silicon Valley's Top Technology Innovation Showcase

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/01/09 -- On April 24 the Silicon Valley will take a one-day deep dive into the cloud computing ecosystem. In its 13th series, the Under the Radar conference is bringing the most disruptive SaaS, PaaS, virtualization, and cloud infrastructure startups from around the globe to pitch to some of the most influential minds in technology and business today.

Startups will get 15 minutes on stage to present to a panel of judges, including CIOs and buyers of technology from telecommunications, healthcare, entertainment & media, finance, as well as VCs and press. The audience will cast their votes and a winning startup will be announced at the end of the day.

"Now is the perfect time for cloud startups," says Debbie Landa, CEO of Dealmaker Media, producer of Under the Radar. "When economic belts tighten, innovation ramps up. The enterprise's fear of cloud computing is quickly turning into adoption. VCs are investing, and startups are generating revenue. I look forward to the deal making that will happen between attendees and presenters following this conference."
