The AWS Public Dataset Program covers the cost of storage for publicly available high-value cloud-optimized datasets. We work with data providers who seek to:

  • Democratize access to data by making it available for analysis on AWS
  • Develop new cloud-native techniques, formats, and tools that lower the cost of working with data
  • Encourage the development of communities that benefit from access to shared datasets
