Does an Agent need to be connected all the time

We're thinking of using SQL Clone in our environment but we have a scenario I cannot find in any documentation (or I overlooked it).

We have developer machines that are not always connected to the network. The developers connect to the network using a VPN and they don't always have to use the VPN to do any work.
Can a developer still use the clone locally even it's not connected?

    No, the clone will always need access to the image in order to function. Most database reads will go straight to the image, which is what enables SQL Clone to create clones quickly and save local storage space.

    In our FAQs, we have a section "Can you use SQL Clone remotely?". If there's anything you think we should do to make that easier to find, please let us know!
