Windows Patches for Cloud Servers with a Managed Cloud Service Level


All Windows patches for Cloud Servers with a Managed Cloud Service Level come from Microsoft and are tested in-house before being deployed to the servers.

The patches are deployed to the server generally three weeks after Microsoft releases the patches. Our internal team tests the patches before they are released. The Windows servers themselves check daily for updates, but the WSUS servers only release patches once a month. Additional information can be found in the FAQ and Windows Patching Portal.
