Delivery Optimization and Remote Windows 10 Client Updates

Brass Contributor

If an organization uses Delivery Optimization to update Windows 10 clients, is there any bandwidth affect to note when those clients are now connected to home networks, given the present-day shift toward remote work?

Possibly, not a simple one size fits all answer. 


It depends on a number of variables that combine to tune and maximize the savings.  Details can be found in our just released blog 


DO enables a device to source updates of a peer device(s).  You can configure DO to define the networks for their peer device(s).  If a device is configured to use WU over the internet, and for DO sources, it will see benefits. If the device is configured for on-prem management sourcing, over a VPN, it may not. 

In the blog above, we provided options and details for Split VPN and WU update models.
