S3 For Your Stuff

Me

  • Steve Bradford
  • Sr. Systems Engineer at Herff Jones
  • I like clouds, especially if they look like bunnies

Scenario

You want to create a website that will show off photos of clouds that look like fluffy bunnies.

 

You want this cheap, fast, and with no administrative overhead.

 

Let's hop to it!

Create the S3 Bucket(s)

cloudsthatlooklikebunnies.com

www.cloudsthatlooklikebunnies.com

Enable Web Hosting

AKA : check the box

Set Bucket Policy

{
    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
        {
            "Sid": "PublicReadGetObject",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Principal": "*",
            "Action": "s3:GetObject",
            "Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::cloudsthatlooklikebunnies.com/*"
        }
    ]
}

This allows the world to see your fuffy bunny clouds
