does this means off-chain data would be available to all those subscribed nodes?

If off-chain data is available with other nodes who has subscribed to the stream where I publish my off-chain record. I feel like it is same as we were doing earlier with publish to stream. with off-chain Data I thought I would be storing private data to my local storage and just keep the identifier cache into a stream instead of providing my data with that identifier. I mean is off-chain meant for storing large amount of data and make it available to all those nodes who subscribe to that stream?

Yes, the point of off-chain stream items is to keep the data out of the blockchain itself, so only subscribed nodes retrieve a copy (verified against the in-chain hashes). The feature is explained in depth here:
