First you need the right technique. Check out this article on how to make cheesecake like a pro.
Next you need a great cheesecake recipe.
Freezing Whole Cheesecakes
Flash freeze cheesecake baked in a silicone pan before removing from the pan.
For cheesecake in a spring form pan, cut around the edges and release the sides. Freeze the cheesecake before taking it off the base.
Once frozen remove the silicone pan or spring form pan base. Put a layer of plastic food wrap around the cheesecake then place in an extra large freezer bag removing as much air as possible.
You can also add a layer of heavy duty aluminum foil over the plastic food wrap for extra protection or slightly longer storage time.
Alternatively, or for long term storage flash freeze the cheesecake then vacuum seal it. I recommend vacuum sealing if it'll be in the freeze 4 months or more because you get a tighter more dependable seal with less air and less chance of freezer burn.
Freezing Cheesecake By the Slice
Lay slices of cheesecake on a lined cookie sheet and flash freeze. Once frozen wrap the cheese cake slices in plastic food wrap and place in a freezer bag.
For long term storage you're best bet is to freeze your cheesecake whole because it reduces the amount of surface area which, in turn, reduces the risk of freezer burn.
However you freeze it, be sure to label and date your cheesecake then add it to your freezer inventory sheet.
