New IBM Container Region within Bluemix

IBM Containers launched in the US South Bluemix datacenter June 22, 2015.  Starting today, September 29, 2015, IBM Containers is now available in the London Bluemix datacenter.  If you are new to IBM Containers, start here.  However, if you are familiar with the Bluemix UI, using the CLI, and scalable groups, then we will navigate the Bluemix UI to leverage IBM Containers in London.
