Both advantages and disadvantages of distributed databases are described here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distributed_database

More details are here: http://stanford.edu/dept/itss/docs/oracle/10g/server.101/b10739/ds_concepts.htm

You should also check CDN (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_delivery_network) which is probably the next step after distributed databases.

And the biggest advantage of local database is data availability and speed.
