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.
|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.|
