What does the cache server do?

The Faronics Deploy Cache Server is a small utility that can be installed on machines in the local network. This cache server will download product updates and keep local copies of them available so that client machines are not all having to download the update from the web. 

This can significantly decrease the time and bandwidth that it takes for a download to complete and for the updates to be applied to the client machines. This feature can be enabled by selecting a workstation in the Faronics Deploy Control Grid and turning the option on in the client properties as shown below;

Once enabled client machines will show a small icon next to the name indicating that the cache server is installed.

The cache server currently can require up to 50gb of disk space, depending on what downloads are being cached.
