CloudFront Custom Origin and CloudBerry S3 Explorer

As always we are trying to stay on top of the new functionality offered by Amazon S3  to offer the most compelling Amazon S3 and CloudFront client on Windows platform.  In the release we are adding the support for CloudFront Custom origin. With this feature, customers can use any origin server they own giving them more flexibility in their use of Amazon CloudFront.

To specify a Custom Origin option, first go to the new CloudFront Manager.  CloudFront  | CloudFront Manager in the program menu.


Select the AWS account and click New Distribution to run CloudFront Distribution Wizard.


On the Origin and CNAME step choose Custom Origin option. Specify your domain name in the DNS field and specify the ports if they differ from the default ones. Finish the wizard specifying other options. This is all configurations you need to get started with the new option.


Note: CloudFront Manager and the ability to configure Custom Origin is PRO only feature.

As always we would be happy to hear your feedback and you are welcome to post a comment.

Note: this post applies to CloudBerry Explorer 2.5.1 and later.
CloudBerry S3 Explorer is a Windows product that helps managing Amazon S3 storage and CloudFront.
