we have started using vault for storing private data such as phone numbers, account numbers etc… With this we plan to put quite heavy load on vault (in the direction of 1000 secrets per second at peak time) and we will add several million entries per day.
I realized now, that most people seem to use vault for for storing keys, that they use to encrypt critical data somewhere else. This way of course you don’t have such a heavy load on vault as you might use such a secret maybe for a day or so. The load for storing the actualy (encrypted values) to a different DB.
My question: Is the way we have started to use vault a dead end? Shouldn’t we use vault to store a massive load of encrypted values?
