AWS To Power Twitter’s Real-Time, Global Service


Twitter will use AWS‘s global infrastructure and services to power the real-time, global traffic and improve the experience for people who use Twitter.

This expansion onto AWS marks the first time that Twitter is leveraging the public cloud to scale their real-time service.

Under the multi-year deal, Twitter will rely on the breadth and depth of AWS, including capabilities in compute, containers, storage, and security, to deliver the real-time service with the lowest latency, while continuing to develop and deploy new features to improve how people use Twitter.

The new agreement builds on the companies’ more than decade-long collaboration, where AWS continues to provide Twitter with storage, compute, database, and content delivery services to support its distribution of images, videos and ad content.

Twitter and AWS will create an architecture that extends Twitter’s on-premises infrastructure to enable them to run and scale the real-time service globally, increase its reliability using AWS’s fault-tolerant infrastructure, and move new features into production around the world.

Twitter will take advantage of AWS Graviton2-based instances on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) to power its cloud-based workloads, and use AWS container services to develop and deploy new features and applications consistently across its hybrid infrastructure.

In addition, Twitter will continue to use AWS services such as Amazon CloudFront and Amazon DynamoDB.
