This guide is in continuation to my guide on deploying system center 2012 r2 configuration manager, as found here.
SUP (Software Update Point) – The software update point interacts with the WSUS services to configure update settings, to request synchronization to the upstream update source, and on the central site, to synchronize software updates from the WSUS database to the site server database. More details on this can be found from the following technet article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb632674.aspx
WDS (Windows Deployment Services) – Will be used for Operating System deployment.
