  • I would suggest.. Cloud...!! Since you have 6 MB line from cloud compared to 2 MB from the head office. 

    Also, if you place it in head office you would need a new hardware or a virtual, but in cloud it'll be easier for sure.

    Let me ask you this...

    If the target of this WSUS Server is only the Head Office and Remote Sites.. *WHY* would you put it in your "cloud" site.

    Which actually begs a second question.. Why do you call this a "Private Cloud"? By definition, a "Private Cloud" is ON PREMISE. If you're using cloud services in a PUBLIC cloud, then lets call that what it is: IaaS or PaaS, depending on utilization, and if you're not actually patching machines in that environment, why, pray tell, would you even consider putting a service resource in that environment?
