Microsoft today announced that it will begin delivery of its latest Windows 10 Feature Update on Monday, April 30. As part of that release, the company is delivering some key enhancements built into the operating system to ease network bandwidth burden and IT headaches through better utilization when delivering security and feature updates. Most of the technology community know this as peer caching which was pioneered by companies like Adaptiva, 1E, and 2Pint Software. Microsoft calls it Delivery Optimization.
…Delivery Optimization enhancements are coming in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update…
Delivery Optimization allows for one device to download an update and then use the local network to deliver that update to peers. This significantly reduces bandwidth (by as much as 90 percent) and that results in a much better experience for everyone on the network.
With the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, you will be able to monitor Delivery Optimization Status using Windows Analytics—including how many devices are enabled and the bandwidth savings you’ve achieved.
