Using the Ensembl data hosted on Amazon AWS

There are two ways of accessing Ensembl data from within Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) service.

Public Data Sets MySQL flat-file and FASTA dumps

From Amazon's website:

AWS Hosted Public Data Sets provide a convenient way to share, access, and use public domain or non-proprietary data within your Amazon EC2 environment. Select public data sets are hosted on AWS for free as an Amazon EBS snapshot. Any Amazon EC2 customer can access this data by creating their own personal Amazon EBS volume from a publicly shared Amazon EBS public data set snapshot. They can then access, modify, and perform computation on these data sets directly using an Amazon EC2 instance and just pay for the compute and storage resources that they use.

The lastest release snapshots have been submitted to the public dataset program, amazon will be updating these in due course.

Details of how to access the data can be found at http://aws.amazon.com/publicdatasets/

Pre-configured Single Species MySQL AMIs

We also provide pre-configured Ensembl MySQL EC2 cloud images. These are pre-built images that allow you to run your own private personal single species MySQL instances on EC2. There are images for each of our species; just start one up and connect with the API (or mysql client) just as you would with ensembldb, or useastdb. More details and instructions are provided in this post on our blog.
