The first step in deploying Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) is to design the server configuration, either a simple configuration with a single server or a complex configuration with multiple WSUS servers. Considerations include connection bandwidth (for both Internet connections and local area network [LAN] or wide area network [WAN] connections), network configuration, and different language requirements.
