Reboot
- This is a graceful reboot. All processes are given time to shut down normally before the system is rebooted.

Reboot in Recovery - Reboots a separate image that allows you to mount and access your server as if it was a secondary disk drive. Useful in recovering data or repairing a server in case a major problem occurs.

Shutdown - This is a graceful Shutdown. All processes are given time to shut down normally before the system is rebooted.

Force Shutdown - This forces the server to shut down right away, without waiting for running processes to close first.
