About the client

Domiporta Sp. z o.o. is the owner of the classifieds websites and – among the largest in Poland – in the real estate and automotive sectors, respectively.

Domiporta integrates all segments of the housing market on a single digital platform – simplifying the process of buying and selling property and adapting it to users’ needs. With its brands in the finishing and furniture sector, Merkury Market and, the company also helps to renovate and furnish flats.

Client’s needs

The company decided to move its entire infrastructure to a Polish provider. Two main factors determined the change:

  • The service did not provide all the functionality Domiporta needed, especially in connection with the use of Windows systems,
  • Cloud and operating costs were rising (especially in 2022) due to the increase in the exchange rate; cost optimization based mainly on turning functionalities off and reducing parameters of the IT environment did not provide tangible benefits.

Choosing a Polish provider would allow independence from currency fluctuations, so the client sent out inquiries to providers in Poland – including, MAIN.


MAIN's offer met all of our criteria in terms of technology – the infrastructure they provided was excellent for the IT stack we had developed – and value for money.

However, the deciding factor was commitment. By quickly establishing an open dialogue and regular contact, the MAIN team showed that they cared about working together and providing solutions tailored to our needs.

The very first meeting was defined by open communication and mutual understanding.

After receiving information about the company's needs and the required parameters of the IT environment, within two hours we were ready with a preliminary configuration proposal and a quote for further discussion.

Migration to MAIN Private Cloud

The parameters of the private cloud were specified in detail by Domiporta. The client specified such elements as the type of virtualization, the number and parameters of virtual machines, their purpose, and additional services, including backups and scope of administration.

Two days after the contract was signed, virtual machines were ready for migration. During weekly meetings of the IT teams we efficiently developed a joint migration process.

We prepared the environment 100% in accordance with the client’s design and minimized the downtime of systems that naturally occurs during their transfer. As a result, end users of Domiporta’s portals did not experience any downtime.

The migration went smoothly thanks to:

  • A detailed process co-developed with the client’s IT team,
  • Full involvement of IT teams, ongoing exchange of insights,
  • Openness to finding new solutions.

The total cost of moving our environment to MAIN turned out to be much lower than we expected.

Our engineers are constantly monitoring the environment, managing it at the operating system level (PaaS – Platform-as-a-Service) and responding quickly (max. 1 business day) to all requests.

Status meetings, which started even before the contract was signed, are also held regularly. We have configured the environment to be maintenance-free for the customer on a daily basis, so during this time together we can focus on finding new solutions and supporting the company in further development.
