Hungry green pigs have stolen the eggs from a flock of brightly colored birds. To retrieve the eggs, the birds catapult themselves at the pigs’ hideouts. Recognize the scenario? “Angry Birds”, known as a smartphone app, is also available as a PC game stuffed animal or accessory – and can be ordered via an online shop, which often has to cope with extreme peaks in portal traffic and consistently high loads.

The system recognizes the output device and shows appropriate content.
Responsive design adjusts the entire shop to any display format.
The new store is integrated with four third-party systems.
The development studio Rovio was looking for a flexible and reliable shop system for Angry Birds that could grow with the requirements of the users. The company chose Magento Gold partner AOE to implement the shop in the Amazon cloud. More than one billion downloads of the app make Angry Birds an absolute bestseller.
Each new version of the game creates massive peaks in portal traffic. By relocating the hosting of the Magento store with the highest traffic worldwide to the cloud, the webshop is automatically scalable. Homepage and category pages can handle several thousand requests per second without any problems.
