Are there any performance gains from sharding Loki S3 storage over several S3 instances

I’m not even sure if this is possible… However, this is something we did with Thanos because of reasons. Now we are at the point of building up Loki for our production logging.

We should prepare to ingest at least 30k logs per sec at the start and have room to double that. Should I be worried about the performance of one single S3 instance. Will probably use several S3 buckets to use a similar sharding of data as we have done with Elasticsearch in the past.

Ideally, we would use just one S3, to keep config and architecture simple. Any recommendations agains that?

All feedback much appreciated :slight_smile:
