By default, ArcGIS Server creates map and image service caches in the server cache directory that was created when you configured the ArcGIS Server site. However, you can configure a different location to store the cache files.
When you configure cache directories for a site, publishers choose one of these directories to store the cache for their map and image services.
You have the following options for cache locations:
- Shared directory—To configure a shared directory for map and image caches, see About server directories and Add a server directory in Server Manager.
- Cloud storage location—To configure a cloud store for caching, see Map and image caches in the cloud and Register your data with ArcGIS Server using Server Manager.
