Appirio, a newer cloud hosting startup promises to save companies $1 million on IT, or it will make up the difference.

“We’re putting our money where our mouth is,” Nichols said in announcing the initiative April 22. “We think this guarantee will encourage companies to take their cloud adoption to the next level. Running your business 100% in the cloud is different than piecemeal adoption.” To be eligible, as company must currently be spending at least $5 million a year on IT, move its whole infrastructure from on-premises to in the cloud, and have more than 500 employees.

Appirio itself is a 200-employee company in Mountain View, Calif. “Our experience operating as a serverless enterprise gives us confidence that a million dollars in savings is just the tip of the iceberg,” said Nichols. Customers include the City of Los Angeles, IMS Health, Motorola, Qualcomm, Rehab Care, Diversey, Avago and the Japan Post Network.
