Can Windows Server 2008 R2 do backups to remote locations?

http://serverfault.com – I have a WS2008 R2 box that does local backups of all my PCs, databases, etc. I do replication to a few drives. I want to be able to backup across the network, offsite, to say a drive at my office or home. I can't find any documentation that does this. Can WS2008 do this? If so, can someone provide me with some documentation? Otherwise I was thinking of setting up a local back up, creating a scheduler that calls a bat file witch then FTPs the file somewhere. Would that work? I want to go this route only if there are no options with WS2008. Thanks in advance! (HowTos)
