I've been experimenting with Dagster a bit and have a high-level question related to partitioning. It seems that partition_configs and partition definitions with jobs and assets, respectively, can in practice accomplish the same thing. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using one over the other? I will have partition dependencies, backfills up to 60k in size, and will be running on kubernetes. Thanks for any thoughts.
