Good morning,
I was thinking bout setting up a cache server for our company. We currently have a program that pulls information from ms sql server 2008. Some of the users are on a remote site and it takes near 1 hour to load the application. Would a cache server work for us by caching most of the data on there end?

You're probably better off upgrading that remote application to MySQL or Postgreql.

What kind of cache are you thinking of? If it is a web cache your main two choices are Varnish (https://www.varnish-cache.org/) and Squid (http://www.squid-cache.org/).
