A Server type is a set of parameters that allow you to group your server according to certain configuration. For example, you can create a type according to the servers' hardware configuration, bandwidth, capacity, etc. Depending on your users' needs you can offer them the best solution for their business.

This module can be used for managing server types: you can add a new server type, edit and delete an existing one. When adding a new server in DCImanager, you will be able to choose a desired type.
