Windows Server Update Services WSUS is one of the features of SBS 2011 that really helps out admins of smaller networks. Through the SBS server console, admins can easily push out updates to all of their connected PCs from a central location. Instead of each PC being responsible for its updates, they are downloaded once to the SBS server, then distributed to the PCs. WSUS is a great timesaver -- and bandwidth saver -- for the small network.
