Microsoft Windows Server Update Services Review

Provides central management interface but needs more fine grain control

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this for deploying and downloading through systems and servers. 

How has it helped my organization?

It provides central management interface for deployment.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the integration of updates with our AD management. You can make an easy policy, embed WSUS, and in that actual policy we can embed to the extent to any device that generates gets automatic downloads from WSUS.

What needs improvement?

I would want the GUI on the continuing interface of the WSUS and more fine grain control. I don't want full blown enterprises. I want another object deployment, in a different kind of way that the enterprise just doesn't provide for me right now.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is quite stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is quite scalable. You can integrate it with your organization. It can be scalable to what you have set it to be.

How is customer service and technical support?

I have not used tech support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was quite straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

The ability to have more fine control within this solution is very important. It is not available for the solution in its current state.
