Object storage feature on DigitalOcean

Looks like DO is coming out with an object storage product: https://www.digitalocean.com/products/storage/object-storage/

It would be nice to somehow access this through Rancher, as a faux storage host or something, so I could offload storage from my compute nodes. Is this a crazy idea? If not (and even if so) how would I do it?

Pretty much every cloud has some sort of S3-compatible object store, but they’re generally very slow to use as a general purpose filesystem.
