VoltDB partitions vs Vertica segments

I am used to the concept of segments in Vertica for sharding and partitions for management.

I understand Voltdb has partitions. Is a partition a unit of sharding ? (i.e when I load data into a partitioned table, how does it get distributed across the nodes of a cluster)
