Angry birds? Angry users!

Wow! People love Angry Birds!

Today we launched the full version of Angry Birds for Android, before it was available anywhere else.  The demand exceeded all expectations, and degraded performance on getjar.com.  For some time, the site was inaccessible due to the load.

In the past few months, we’ve built the team up to nearly 60 people and we’ve been focused on scalability on many fronts.  We were unfortunately not done yet, and couldn’t handle 8x to 10x higher peak load.  GetJar normally does 3 million downloads a day and we may have hit more than 10 million today if all went well.  In 2 weeks, we’ll complete many of the scalability projects, and we’ll be able to manage 10+ million downloads a day.

Deep regrets to Rovio, who has a real hit on their hands with Angry Birds, and to all of our supporters.

We’re looking forward to big things and hope you’ll continue the ride with GetJar.

    Just got a debug message trying to go to getjar.com/. Yikes.

    Many scalability projects? Just don’t fall into the NIH trap please. Cause you could save a lot of time (which == money) and then pay for Akamai.
