You are right. We store the application install package in a shared folder on a file server. That is how it is designed to deploy software through Group Policy and the performance rely on much factors such as the performance of the server, the performance of the client machine, the number of the target clients and the network bandwidth.
A few best practices that might help reduce the deploy time are listed below:
1. Software can be deployed at the site level, domain level, or organizational unit level in Active Directory. It is recommended that users deploy software as high in the Active Directory hierarchy or tree as possible. Software should be deployed close to the root in the Active Directory tree because it allows users to use one GPO to deploy software to multiple users.
2. Deploy multiple applications with a single GPO because it is easier to administer multiple applications from the same GPO than to manage multiple GPOs. User logon time is also accelerated because less GPOs need to be processed.
3. If there are different users and computers that need different applications deployed, create OUs according to these software management requirements, place the necessary users or computers in the OU, then apply the GPO containing the software that should be deployed
For your information, we have a Deployment sub-forum. For this query, you might want to post there.
