Yes. But this is not that trivial.
The easiest part is mirroring your servers to a local machine. Use
whatever works for you to do this. The hard part is getting clients to
use a geographically close server. For that you will need to return a
different IP address when a client request your hostname, depending on
where the request originates from. But this has nothing to do with
apache really...
