limit on volumes per region?

If I make > 3 volumes in ams it complains

❯ fly volumes create tth_data --size 10 --region ams
Error failed creating volume: Can't create volume, application is already using 3 of 3 zones in ams

What is the rationale? I am only supposed to have one app server in each zone? Seems to limit how much data I can store

Cheers,
Tom

Most people use volumes for databases, so we default to putting them on isolated hardware.

You can disable this with fly volumes create ... --require-unique-zone=false.
