Today we serve some staics pages if our main site is unavailable. I would like to store those staic pages on S3 bucket and serve them from my VTM
As for your information I do have Java Web Server Extension activated for this today. VTM version are 17.1 soon 17.2 (validation in-progress)

I spoke with a Brocade TAC representative regarding your request and this was their response:
"It looks like this user's request is not possible. Amazon Web Services itself can turn static S3 HTML content into a web site. There is the restriction that anything dynamic, like AJAX, PHP, etc., would be prohibited, but it seems the user is already aware of that.
In any case, the traffic manager is not able to tap into this capability offered directly from Amazon. To do this, the traffic manager would probably need to make reference to an Amazon Resource Name (ARN). But when building out a service inside the traffic manager, it assumes that there will be nodes. Nodes can be identified by name or IP address. A port number is also required. But I see no way of turning an S3 bucket, its contents, or an Amazon Resource Name into a node."
We hope this answers your question; if you have any further questions, please let us know.

Chiming in from the side lines here (I am an ADC Product Manager at Brocade)..
We actually have customers doing just this - using an S3 bucket for storing content and serving them from a Traffic Manager. Their main reason was wanting to enable compression, caching, access lists and User-Agent specific content routing, but your use case will work just as easily. I just re-tested it, and it took longer to write it up then it took to set it up!
The setup is actually pretty simple:
