Dallas Business Journal Nominates Company to Elite 2010 Finalist List

Dallas—September 27, 2010—SoftLayer Technologies®, the innovative on-demand data center services provider, has been named one of the “Best Places to Work” by the Dallas Business Journal.

The “Best Places to Work” awards, announced September 23, are now in their eighth year and recognize top employers in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Companies are selected for the honor based on in-depth surveys of the businesses’ own employees.

“Since SoftLayer was founded in 2005, we have strived to make the company a great place to work and build a career,” said Lance Crosby, SoftLayer Chief Executive Officer. “That philosophy has helped us attract and retain some of the country’s brightest talent, and in turn has allowed us to innovate our industry-leading services.”
