San Francisco, California – (The Hosting News) – May 12, 2008 – NTT America, Inc. (NTTA), a wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation and network integrator, hosting and web services firm, is providing the managed IT infrastructure for Twitter, Inc.
The integrated NTTA solution includes fully managed hosting, managed security, managed networking, and a tier one global backbone. NTTA’s SAS 70 Type II audited Premier Data Centers provide an IT infrastructure-as-a-service that is fully redundant with high availability and scalability to support Twitter’s continued rapid growth. Additionally, NTTA Professional Services bring a proven technical team to the solution to manage IT infrastructure issues, thus enabling Twitter’s IT staff to focus priorities elsewhere.
Biz Stone, Co-founder of Twitter noted, ”NTT Communications’ history of reliability and its global perspective were key factors in our decision to select NTTA as our hosting services provider. As Twitter grows and more people around the world depend on our infrastructure, we feel an increased responsibility to make the right decisions for the people who have helped make us a success as well as those who have yet to discover our service.”
Lee Mighdoll, Vice President of Engineering and Operation, Twitter added, ”With NTTA, we can focus our resources on developing software and serving our valued user community rather than on building, financing, and managing an in- house IT infrastructure team.” Don Goodwin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing remarked, ”We are proud that Twitter selected NTTA as its trusted growth partner. NTTA IT infrastructure-as-a-service enables Web 2.0 companies and their investors to maintain a laser focus on their strategy, get to market faster and preserve capital.

By deploying the NTTA Enterprise Hosting Platform, Twitter can easily scale its application to deliver on its promise of reliability to its user community around the world.”
