You can cache a clustered Data ONTAP volume outside the cluster by using a FlexCache volume in a storage system that is deployed at a remote site and connected to the cluster over a Wide Area Network (WAN). This type of configuration can help in situations such as distributing read-intensive data across multiple locations.

You must consider the following when using a FlexCache volume to cache a clustered Data ONTAP volume outside the cluster:
