Private Cloud for large and fast-growing e-commerce website



Facing fierce competition from online bookstores e.g. Amazon, eason developed a bold and innovative “bricks and clicks” retail model. The business put very substantial investment into its e-commerce capability, targeting both the Irish and International online markets.
