Organizations (Orgs)

An Org can be considered to be the name of an Application Group, Product Group, or Business Unit. An Org consists of computing resources and spaces. Each Org has a default resource quota that is shared by multiple spaces. Orgs can be maintained by a single or multiple users, who then can manage the Org and can create resource quotas for each space.
