TFS 2005 multiple site configuration

Looking to find out if TFS 2005 or any version of TFS supports multiple site configuration. For example if I have a development house in Florida and want to keep their data synchronous with our Michigan site (for backup as well as use) is this possible? I would NOT be using both sites for development simultaneously. The Michigan site would be for reviewing code or maybe compiling a build for local use.

 I know much of TFS is back ended with SQL, and SQL supports replication, but I have yet to see a scenario such as this that would apply.

Bottom line question: Does TFS support multiple site installations?

the best way to achieve this for remote sites  to install a TFS proxy on the remote site(s)

Thank you, that is good info. Question about the 'How' link.. it shows a PC at the remote site connected to the main site and not the proxy. Is that a required machine and setup? If so, why is that required?

No, this is not required, it seems this was put in the diagram for demonstration purpose, i.e. clients directly connected to TFS VS. clients using TFS proxy, as you will see next to it , there is a diagram for two machines connected through Proxy.

Great. One more thing, then I'm good...

I dont see any version specifics on this info. Does this apply to TFS 2010 as well?
