If the remote database is a ldap server, you may use back_ldap.
If the remote database is a RDBM you may use a combination of
back_sql, back_relay and probably back_ldap or back_meta.
If the remote database is of any other type you may use back_perl. 
But note that the performance would be rather poor compared to
back_bdb or back_hdb.
