Peer Caching is a windows feature, that allows clients to download windows updates either directly from microsoft, or from another peer in the same subnet, who has already downloaded the file. This feature can be activated using group policy or local configuration.

Compared to WSUS this is a lot easier to setup and does not require a large cache like WSUS does (filled up my system partition with 50 gb).
