How to configure a CloudFront distribution on the Amazon S3 bucket

To deliver your content in an Amazon S3 bucket through CloudFront edge locations, it is necessary to configure your bucket as an origin store by defining a CloudFront web distribution, specifying the S3 bucket as an origin server, and storing your content on the S3 bucket. After creating a CloudFront web distribution, the distribution will be available within the next 15 minutes. Then, they can receive the content through the closest edge location, not directly from the configured S3 bucket as an origin server. This is how CloudFront speeds up distribution of your content and minimizes network latency through the edge locations.
