What is the "Sharing Data on AWS" guide?


The guide explains how the AWS Cloud changes the dynamic for sharing data. When data is shared in the cloud, researchers no longer have to worry about downloading or copying data before getting to work. In this new paradigm, data users analyze massive amounts of data in minutes, regardless of where they are in the world or how much local storage space or computing capacity they can access. This guide contains practical guidance for anyone who needs to share data, whether publicly or within your own organization.

Topics included:

  • Advantages of sharing data in the cloud
  • Non-technical considerations 
  • Preparing data to be shared on Amazon S3
  • Case studies from the Allen Institute for Brain Science, the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, and the Space Telescope Science Institute 

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.
