Cloud Expo: Appirio Wants You to Save $1 Million with Cloud Computing

Looks to Help Customers Look at Cloud in a Strategic Way

Cloud Expo Europe €550 Savings here!
Cloud Expo West
$800 Savings here!

  • Are you willing and able to move your business entirely to the cloud?
  • Are you able to bring together your IT and business leadership to work with Appirio on a cloud roadmap?
  • Do you employ more than 500 people, and spend more than $5M a year on software, hardware, IT personnel, and outsourcing?
  • Appirio says that companies who can answer "yes" to these three questions should get involved with the company to adopt Cloud Computing in a strategic matter. The company has offered what it calls a $1 million guaranty in savings for customers who qualify for its program.

    "If you qualify, Appirio will work with you to put together a business-case roadmap to move entirely to the cloud. If you decide to outsource the execution of that roadmap to us, we'll manage the migration of your entire IT infrastructure to a pre-integrated suite of leading cloud applications and platforms," the company said in an official statement.

    "When we're done, your IT spend that year will be at least $1M less than it would have been with your on-premise infrastructure. If its not, we'll do everything we can to make up the difference. We'll manage your IT for free, investing up to a million dollars of our cloud expertise to make the situation right."

    "Of course, there's more fine print, but the bottom line is simple: Cloudsourcing is a long term relationship, with significant investment from both sides. Now, our customers can enjoy more of the benefits in moving to the cloud, with Appirio helping to shoulder and mitigate some of the risks."

    Appirio's strategy comes just as Cloud Expo in New York, the largest Cloud Computing ever produced, ends and as delegates start to look forward to Cloud Expo in Prague June 21-22 and Santa Clara November 1-4.

    A Rock Star Faculty, Top Keynotes, Sessions, and Top Delegates!
    Cloud Expo 2010 West, November 1-4, Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading Cloud industry players in the world.

    The growth and success of Cloud Computing will be on display at the upcoming Cloud Expo conferences and exhibitions in Prague June 21-22 and Santa Clara November 1-4.

    The recent Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York City was the largest Cloud Computing conference ever produced, more sponsors, exhibitors and delegates than all other Cloud events of the year combined!

    The four-day Santa Clara event will attract more than 6,000 delegates from 48 countries and over 200 sponsors and exhibitors on a 120,000 sq ft show floor, larger than Cloud Expo 201 East, New York City event!

    All main layers of the Cloud ecosystem will be represented in the6th and 7th International Cloud Expo - the infrastructure players, the platform providers, and those offering applications, and they'll all be here to speak, sponsor, exhibit and network.

    "Cloud Expo was announced on February 24, 2007, the day the term ‘cloud computing' was coined," said Fuat Kircaali, founder and chairman of SYS-CON Events, Inc. "Cloud has become synonymous with ‘computing' and ‘software' in two short years, and this event has become the new PC Expo, Comdex, and InternetWorld of our decade. By 2012, more than 50,000 delegates per year will attending Cloud Expo."
