This question regarding S3 block, besides using it as storage for deployment, and also storing flow and task results, what else can we use it for?

hi @Patrick Tan - iā€™d say you already identified the distinctly prefect-oriented uses of an S3 bucket, but you could also use it for general blob storage for reading and writing from flows - so pretty much whatever you want!

Is it OK to to share a S3 block for storing results of different flows?

yes!
just be careful that these flows are not writing to the same
result_storage_key
or else they will overwrite each other's results
by default UUIDs will be used for blob paths, so you shouldnt have any collisions there
