Hi, a question about databases. We have a prefect server install in kube using helm. If I'm storing data from my Flows, is it expected that I would stand up a fresh database, or is it ok to use the database that prefect is using itself? This question is more about "best practices" than if it is literally possible.

Hey @Ian Harvey, some users do indeed do this. I don't think there is a "best" practice around this.

Ok thanks. It's certainly easier to use whatever is already available, as long as it's not likely to break anything
