Amazon Web Services will provide global cloud infrastructure to deliver Twitter timelines under terms of a multiyear agreement announced Tuesday.

The social network will tap AWS’ infrastructure and portfolio of services to support the delivery of millions of tweets per day, marking the first time Twitter is leveraging the public cloud to scale its real-time service.

The two companies will create an architecture that extends the social network’s on-premises infrastructure and uses AWS Graviton2-based instances on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud to power its cloud-based workloads, as well as AWS’ container services to develop and deploy new features and applications consistently across its hybrid infrastructure.

AWS will also continue to provide Twitter with storage, compute, database and content delivery services to support its distribution of images, videos and ad content, as it has been doing for more than 10 years, via services including Amazon CloudFront and Amazon DynamoDB.
