Case study - VOX

VOX and the first SAP-to-Google-Cloud migration on the Polish market

Deployment date: 2021

Sector: manufacture

Google Cloud

OChK partnered with VOX to carry out the project of moving its main SAP system and web applications to Google Cloud. This was the first such migration on the Polish market.

VOX is a brand whose purpose is to provide comprehensive interior solutions tailored to the lifestyles of homeowners. VOX’s new strategy allows it to successfully expand its business in foreign markets. Today, the brand’s products are available in more than 60 countries all over the world.


Truly dynamic growth and globalization of the VOX brand necessitates creation of a work environment such that it supports providing technical solutions for sales, warehousing, logistics, and production processes. High availability of IT systems and their flexibility in development are the hallmarks of cloud solutions, which VOX now uses.

OChK became the brand’s partner to carry out the project of moving its main SAP system and web applications to Google Cloud. Thanks to OChK experts and the companies participating in the project, it was possible to automate the production migration process as much as possible and (during an earlier trial migration) assess the resources needed, estimate the costs, optimize the environment, and take advantage of new services that facilitate and accelerate the operation and development of VOX applications.


Taking advantage of the services available on Google Cloud allowed to carry out the migration from a local data center to the cloud. During the migration, new services were launched that had not been previously used by VOX.

  • The launch of Cloud CDN and Load Balancer allowed to achieve faster access to web applications from various corners of the world and improved the performance of VOX web applications themselves

  • Hybrid Connectivity services ensure great access to resources on Google Cloud from all VOX locations around the world

  • The Compute Engine service helped to migrate and put into operation the current SAP production environment as well as historical SAP systems

  • In addition, other servers based on Microsoft and Linux systems were migrated too


As a result of carrying out the migration of VOX resources to Google Cloud, the following results were achieved:

  • increased speeds of launching new virtual machines as well as invoking new resources and services thanks to easy access to resources such as: RAM, CPU, storage

  • accelerated operation of web applications through the use of the Cloud CDN service

  • quicker access to web applications from various parts of the world through the use of the Load Balancer service (e.g. from a VOX location in Mexico to VOX resources in the cloud – compared to the previous data center, the response time was reduced from 128 ms to 32 ms)

  • launch of a multi-region backup, so that copies of systems and data are located at different Data Centers within the European Union

  • ability to quickly temporarily increase performance of the systems
