In prefect 1 we could use checkpoints to persist results. Is that replaced with caching in V2?

That’s correct - for now results are only persisted locally (within the executing infrastructure).
If you’d like to persist results for more than that (e.g. across flows), it would need to be persisted to remote storage.

Ok, is there a nice way to interact with persisted outputs outside of tasks/flows? E.g. a cache DF from a task and I would like to open that up on the side

There are some requests for integrations to add this support (to persist results natively, outside of local storage), but I don’t an ETA of when they could be implemented and released at this time
