    1. Logical Components

In order to deploy shared-resource instances, DFE maintains a logical representation of your physical topology. There are three main *logical* components:

1. **Mount**: represents a physical storage device, or mount point, where instance data is stored.
1. **Server**: represents a physical/virtual computer where various components operate. Each **server** requires a **mount**.
1. **Cluster**: represents a grouping of **servers**
