IBM zEnterprise case study: JD Williams

Why does a leading online retailer invest in the most powerful general purpose
mainframe in the world only to turn it into an image and video server?

Yet that is exactly what JD Williams did. The company is a leading UK-based online retailer, selling products through more than 50 websites and 30 catalogs. The company has experienced 50% annual growth for the past several years, and the Web has been key to that growth. Maintaining the top performance of its Web platform is paramount.
