You can have a Content DB per site collection. If you need very different URLs for the 3 portals you might put them in their own applications, but if not, stick with different Site Collections only.

Make sure you do some sizing for the different portals so you have an idea of data volume and web traffic.

Here's the url mapping details;

If I have a portal with a top navigation of

Department A    |  Department B  |  Department C

Then for Department B I need to use it as a jump off to another site collection, with a separate top navigation, will that be an issue?  Also, it will need a separate url.

Thanks
