What is the AWS Open Data Guide?


The AWS Open Data Guide explains the role of the AWS Cloud in enabling researchers to collaborate with data, both inside and outs of your organization. The guide walks through the why’s and how’s of sharing data, including success stories and recommendations across a range of data types. Topics include:

  • The advantages of sharing data in the cloud
  • Preparing data for Amazon S3
  • Sharing data on Amazon S3
  • Controlling costs & access
  • Sharing data with Amazon SNS
  • Measuring usage of shared data

Why Share Data?


There are many reasons to share data. Many government organizations are required by law to make data available. Increasingly, researchers are required to share data as a condition of receiving grant funding. But sharing data to comply with policy is not the end of the story. Your data holds great potential – if others can find it. Data-sharing requirements have been created to maximize the number of people able to analyze and derive insights from your data.

How to Share Data


Sharing data requires more than simply making it available for download or creating an API to access it. In many ways, sharing data is similar to shipping a software product. Just like software, data is made up of digital information; it requires documentation, users may require support, and it can become a vital part of a workflow.
