I need to clarify - INET mode was designed to allow the catalog(s) and
interchange to reside on a different physical server than http. That is a
somewhat different case than what you were inquiring about, but it still
allows for significant work distribution. With dbms like mysql which allow
remote connections, it is also a simple matter to have your db reside on
yet another physical machine, further distributing the workload.
