SharePoint 2013 - Split Site Collections between different SQL Servers - (not a single site collection)

I have a requirement to be able to create site collections (from the same Web App) between not only different content databases (which I know how to do), but to also be able to spread the web app as well as site collections over different SQL servers, (without using SQL alias or clustering or any type of name consolidation.) In other words, when a site collection is created be able to say this one goes to server1\sqlinstance and this one goes to server2\sqlinstance, all within the same web app.

I can imagine it being possible, but again I can also imagine it being not possible, and I am leaning that direction. If any one has any concrete information, a tech net article would be great, please let me know.

Thanks

I went through this article and it seems to have everything you need to move a site collection to another database server added to a farm.

Note: You can't split the collection data between servers.  I doubt Microsoft would ever support that
