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:

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

You can see examples of datasets supported by the AWS Public Dataset Program on the Registry of Open Data on AWS.

To share your dataset through the AWS Public Dataset Program, you must agree to the AWS Public Dataset Program Terms and Conditions, which are available at: https://aws.amazon.com/public-datasets/terms/ 

AWS evaluates applications to the AWS Public Dataset Program every three months. The quarterly deadlines for submitting AWS Public Dataset Program applications are: March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31 (or the first business day after those dates). Application decisions are typically communicated within one month following the applicable quarterly deadline.

If we bring your dataset into the AWS Public Dataset Program, we will cover the costs of storage and data transfer for a period of two years, in accordance with the AWS Public Dataset Program Terms and Conditions.
