I think this question is answered in links from my previous post (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/Data_Manipulation/Q__26907263.html)

You should ask yourseve if and how you valuate the fact
- single site failure does not affect performance of system.
- the database reflects organizational structure
- a catastrophic event such as a fire does not destroy all data
- systems can be modified, added and removed from the distributed database without affecting other modules
- it costs less to create a network of smaller computers with the power of a single large computer
etc.
