Public Data Sets Amazon
Amazon Web Services hosts a variety of public data sets that anyone can access for free.
Previously, large data sets such as the mapping of the Human Genome required hours or days to locate, download, customize, and analyze. Now, anyone can access these data sets and analyze them using Amazon EC2 instances or Amazon EMR (Hosted Hadoop) clusters. By hosting this important data where it can be quickly and easily processed with elastic computing resources, AWS hopes to enable more innovation, more quickly.
