Can I mount Amazon S3 as a File System and change InfluxDB data folder to point to it?

Hi @nmahesh567,

Thanks for your question, and welcome to our community!

I would strongly advise against this. The performance of an S3 mount to a machine would be particularly bad.

Can you expand on what you’re trying to accomplish by this and maybe I can provide some alternative solutions?
