One of the headaches of running multiple PCs in your home and small business is managing the slew of operating system updates that Microsoft regularly delivers. If you have bandwidth caps, or simply haven’t the time to download and install all of those updates separately on each computer, why not download them once and distribute them locally via Windows Server 2012 Essentials?
