I am using signoz since last few days . Just a beginner .
I want to use s3 as storage in signoz . I can see it is possible in the documentation but it is mention that s3 can be use as cold storage .
I want to use as primary . Is it possible ?

When you say S3 as primary - do you mean you don't want any data to be stored in disk? @Sai Saubhagya
Can you share what is the use case for this? Because querying from disks is generally faster than directly from S3

@Pranay Thanks for reply . Yes i don't want to store the data in disks .
Also if you can guide me to increase the storage size of existing disk .
Our signoz is running in eks and i have a pvc of 20 GB . If i want to increase it to 1TB what should be the steps ?

@Ankit Nayan@nitya-signoz Should be able to add more insights on increasing disk size
@Sai Saubhagya If you want to give some space for disks and set more space for s3 - you can set retention period of each of them accordingly - say 10 GB In disk and 1TB in S3
As of now, I don't think you can do 0 GB in disk, https://signoz.io/docs/userguide/retention-period/ But will let Ankit confirm on this as well

Hi Sai, it’s recommended to keep the hot data on disk. You can set the retention period to a day and then move it to S3. You will still be able to query the data as usual with a slight increase in latency.
