Microsoft Windows Update for Business  is a service in Windows 10 that will allow administrators to manage updates for client devices.  The service features distribution rings that allow administrators to specify which devices receive updates first and maintenance windows that allow administrators to specify when updates should be made. The service also provides administrators with peer to peer (P2P) update delivery capabilities for branch offices and remote sites that have limited bandwidth

Windows Update for Business integrates with existing tools like Microsoft System Center and the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite. The service is free for Windows Pro and Windows Enterprise devices. Update rings for Windows Update for Business will be managed through Active Directory Group Policy and System Center Configuration Manager.
