Prehash and Preload Content on the Hosted Cache Server (Optional)
Applies To: Windows Server 2012
You can use the procedures in this section to prehash content on your content servers, add the content to data packages, and then preload the content on your hosted cache servers. These procedures are optional because you do not have to prehash and preload content on your hosted cache servers. If you do not preload content, data is added to the hosted cache automatically as clients download it over the WAN connection.
Although these procedures are collectively optional, if you decide to prehash and preload content on your hosted cache servers, performing both procedures is required.
