Introducing CloudBerry Explorer 5.1 for Amazon S3

CloudBerry Explorer 5.1 is a minor release that packs a number of highly-requested features focusing on expanded integration with Amazon's cloud storage services.

Support for encryption and compression for Amazon Cloud Drive

Starting from version 5.1 onward, CloudBerry Explorer natively supports encryption and compression for Amazon Cloud Drive. That is to say, you can now access encrypted and compressed files straight from the app's GUI. You should naturally first indicate the encryption password in the settings. Under Tools, click Options.

Under Compression and Encryption, select the Use Client Side Encryption checkbox.

Click Apply and then OK. Afterward, you can access your compressed and encrypted files by means of CloudBerry Explorer.

BackBlaze B2 Web URL support

In the latest iteration of CloudBerry Explorer we have implemented the support for BackBlaze B2 Web URL. In other words, you can now generate direct links to your files with just a few clicks. To do so, right-click on any file stored on your B2 cloud storage and click Web URL.

A pop-up window will appear with a generated link to your file. 

MBS IAM Role Wizard

An IAM role is similar to a user, in that it is an AWS identity with permission policies that determine what the identity can and cannot do in AWS. You can now go ahead and create such role via CloudBerry Explorer. That in turn gives you greater flexibility with configuring proper policies. The new wizard is available under Access Manager (IAM) — New CloudBerry MBS IAM role. To learn more, be sure to check out our tutorial that covers the matter at length.

Assuming IAM roles

A feature that has been requested by many of our customers — the ability to assume IAM roles. For now it resembles a workaround rather than a feature, as you need to tinker with certain program files to be able to assume roles. For this purpose we've written a lengthy tutorial that will explain step-by-step how to assume IAM roles by means of CloudBerry Explorer.

  • Please, is there any limitation on storage/file size that can be transferred across using Cloudberry Explorer freeware on Openstack (Oracle Cloud)?

    • We are planning to support the OVH object storage in the nearest future. Once it is supported, you will be able to do it in a couple of clicks.
