Django caching

Caching is faster when it is small amount and since caching is done in a memory like RAM in programming. But i came across this caching in file system. Since the operation in file system is slow why would we cache in file system. FYI, there is this option of caching in file system in Django. Am i reading it in some wrong way or something. Help me. I might have the wrong concept of caching too i think. Anybody can enlighten me here?

Cause you might not be able to cache in memory, or your memory capacity is limited. You could cache in file if your long-operation takes longer than just retrieving from file.
