If your looking to have users connect to one database & see the entire enterprise worth of databases then Postgres is not what you want.  Have damanagement get out their wallet & buy Oracle instead.  It's made to purpose.

I would like to know if PostgreSQL can run as a Distributed Data Base 
Management System. Is possible, throught PostgreSQL, to implement 
horizontal partition, this is, to fragment tables horizontally?
For example, can I have a Data Base with 1 table, where it is 
horizontally fragmented and each fragment is located on different places 
(postgresql servers)? See that the Data Base is Unique, but the Data are 
distributed throught a horizontal partitioning. How PostgreSQL could 
help me to solve this problem?
