Can I use a cloud service as my origin server?


Fastly allows you to use cloud services as your origin or backend server. We have instructions for Google Cloud Storage as well as AWS Amazon S3 available.

  • One of the main things to remember when setting up Amazon S3 is to include a default host in the Fastly UI. This step will configure S3 as your backend address, and point Varnish to your specific bucket through the host header.

  • Also, if Surrogate-Control cannot be set on S3, we will honor the x-amz-meta-surrogate-control header set on origin instead.
