Cloud solution provider Appirio this morning announced it will be expanding internationally to more adequately serve its customers in the European and Asia Pacific markets.

The expansion, which the company says will be through a combination of organic and inorganic growth, is being funded by a strategic investment from two existing investors: VC firm GGV Capital and partner Salesforce.com.

Appirio works with organizations such as Facebook, NYU, Thomson Reuters and Home Depot to adopt, integrate and extend cloud applications and platforms like Salesforce.com, Google and Workday. This month, Appirio celebrates its five-year anniversary, and the company claims to have moved over 1 million people to the cloud since its inception.

Its first international office was opened in Tokyo, Japan, in late 2008.

Earlier this year, Appirio announced the acquisition of Infowelders, a full-service Salesforce.com implementation consultancy firm (and VMG).

One of the company’s high-profile backers, Sequoia Capital, apparently didn’t participate in Appirio’s latest financing round, the size of which was not disclosed by the company.
