Distributed applications, in PHP or elsewhere, are applications that split tasks and services to be run on different autonomous servers in one network. This reduces the load on one server and increases the hardware pool.

There was a very interesting discussion about this topic here on E-E with lots of first hand insight by RQuadling, an expert practising distributional computing with PHP:
