Can Apple Server (OS X) become a local repository?

I'm really new at Apple OS, and specifically Apple OS X (10.9.5).  

I've stumbled my way through setting up Apple's version of MDM with Profile Manager.  It's working, the problem is my iPads are on iOS 7.  

I have a very large number of iPads to now "re-register" with this server... upon their registration they are asking to "update to iOS8"...   and our WAN connection is slow...

Is it possible to download and host a local repository on this server to offer iOS 8 for my iPads?  

(yes I've searched... can't find anything about the topic.)

Setting up the Caching service on the server will do the trick. It can provide software updates for OS X, iOS updates and App Store updates to iOS 7 and above.
