DreamFactory Enterprise™, or **DFE** for short, is a virtual hosting system that manages multiple instances of [DreamFactory](https://github.com/dreamfactorysoftware/dreamfactory).

    1. Physical Components

DFE consists of three main physical components. These are the Console, the Dashboard, and the Data Collection System. A rudimentary diagram is shown in figure 1.

    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:

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