Management Summary: High-Performance Webshop for the Magento Store with the world's highest traffic load

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.
