Amazon Makes Sharing Data Easier with Shared EBS
EBS is more than just persisted data

Amazon releases the ability to share EBS snapshots so others can utilize and consume your data, irrespective of format.
But EBS is more than just persisted data. It is a whole mechanism to allow for quickly taking snapshots of your data partition and then mounting that partition elsewhere. Take for example, having your database running on an EBS partition. You can snapshot that partition and mount that new clone on another machine. Quick and easy.
Amazon were quick to exploit this feature and offer publicly blessed pre-configured datasets. For example, ever fancied having the WikiPedia dataset available to your application? Or maybe you would prefer to have all the US Addresses mapping information?
