Types of independent storage as a service in cloud

As per my knowledge, there are three types of cloud storage solutions:
  1. Block storage
  2. File storage
  3. Object storage
And OpenStack provides two of it as a service:
  1. Cinder - block storage
  2. Swift - object storage
But, Cinder services are provided to the user as a part of nova (compute service) and Swift services are provided to the user independently
similarly, Amazon provides two of it as a service:
  1. EBS - block storage
  2. S3 - object storage
But, EBS services are provided to the user as a part of EC2 (compute service) and S3 services are provided to the user independently
so, my question is:
Is block storage not provided as an independent storage as a service? When we talk about only independent storage as a service in cloud, what are the different types of storage provided by the cloud as a service?

    I can't quite make sense of the question.

    ...and Swift services are provided to the user independently

    And:

    ...and S3 services are provided to the user independently

    And:

    so, my question is:
    Is block storage not provided as an independent storage as a service?

    What do you mean by "independent"? Independent of what?

    what are the different types of storage provided by the cloud as a service?

    The three current types are block, file and object storage. But that was your opening statement, so it's not clear if you are simply asking for confirmation.
