Called Cloud Server Group Management, the software lets users manage virtual machines using policies, group-based permissions, policies, bulk execution actions and other actions, Tier 3 said.

Users can use Cloud Server Group Management with Tier 3 Control Portal and its API to let administrators create groups of servers with their own policies and configuration settings.
