    So Windows Apps updating took down our hospitals and government offices we support last month. 8 TB of Data though the internet gateway to update the Photos app and flooded the network. 300MB x 80,000 machines is a lot of data.

    We opened a Premier Support Ticket and asked for a Branch Cache and Internal distribution point solution. Microsoft said they don't have one.
    Clients get to choose:

    1> "Continuing as Status quo and letting Apps update in the middle of the day, impacting network performance and impacting patient care and government functionality when the LAN or WAN is saturated with Windows Apps Update traffic.
    OR
    2> Use Group Policy to turn off patching for Microsoft Edge, Photos and any other Modern Apps which puts the hospitals and government offices at risk for security breaches and virus?"
