Who We Are
Twitter’s globally distributed, real-time communications network generates trillions of events and petabytes of data per day. The Realtime storage Group provides the storage layer that enables products and services at Twitter to be fast, highly scalable, and always available.
What You'll Do
We own Manhattan, an internally-developed distributed, persistent key-value store for low-latency high-throughput use cases. We also own Nighthawk and Twemcache, which are caching solutions built on-top of Redis and Memcached.
To handle Twitter’s scale, we build world-class distributed storage solutions that help serve critical Twitter services with low latency across cloud and on-premise environments. We run thousands of database nodes that process hundreds of millions of requests per second!
