Great news
This is truly great news for the entire security world. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out in the end, but it's certainly a good start.

Tit for Tat
I'm curious what would be required for an individual or business to gain access to this database, and whether it will be a free model or if this get commercialized. 

Only if the information remains free and open, and the organization itself transparent, will this fully succeed. 

The reason I raise the question of commercialization is that DHS has been sorely underfunded, with something like ~20 DHS projects identified by Congressional investigators as likely to fail or have poor outcomes.

If I recall correctly, a recent report from the Government Accountability Office documented DHS as planning to invest $10+ billion in acquisition programs.  With what money?

Look, if the Snowden effect means a little healthy distrust for Government, that's OK as long as the return on that is a more open Government willing to do tit-for-tat.  Let's see if this program is on the right track in two years and whether the database allows InfoSec as a whole in the US to make noticeable strides against cybercrime.

A good story and one we should all follow closely with great interest.
