Include Object Storage in the list of Data Services

I got tripped up recently because I clicked on my list of Data Services / Services and did not see Object Storage there. I ended up opening a separate tab and navigating to Bluemix to create a new container for a Streaming Pipeline project. Of course "Object Storage" is a top-level item in Data Services, but the fact that it was not listed in Services nor in the list of new Services that one could create threw me for a loop.

I would like to Object Storage treated as a peer to other data services whenever possible.

Why is it useful?
Who would benefit from this IDEA? As a data engineer, I would like to manage object storage containers / buckets in a manner consistent with my other data repositories.
How should it work?

    Thomas - I am assuming this is going to be tied with the availability of COS in Bluemix end of Sep?

    And we have COS under data services.

    Closing as Object Storage is deprecated.

    We are currently reworking the design for the data services area where OS will be a peer of the other services in the list of the services not a separate area. Good point that it also should show up in the list of new services.
