Couchbase Hierarchy

Where is the Vbucket map and Vbucket-server maps stored on couchbase exactly. Is it on every node or cluster or ?? . Also, are Vbuckets slices in the bucket i.e. each bucket has around 1024 vbuckets or ??. What is the hierarchy is couchbase … Cluster -> Nodes -> Buckets -> Vbuckets?
