Logical Partitions

In a provider level, under provider we have clusters and under cluster we have devices and under devices there will be partition and under partition there will be configurations and that configuration is called logical partition.

Logical Partition represents a Cluster Partition and is created when Provider Admin provisions cluster partitions to a Tenant. Users in Tenant interact with device through Logical Partition.

Logical partitions are made up of one or more Application Services. A Logical Partition must be associated with a Cluster Partition before it can be deployed on a set of Thunders.
