By some definitions, perhaps. "Distributed database" is an inexact term
that some people use in different ways. Whether MySQL supports this
feature for your needs depends on what you need to do in your project.

MySQL does have some database replication features, perhaps that does
what you need. Read about it here:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/Replication.html

MySQL also offers what they call the "MySQL Cluster". You should read
about that too, to see if it is what you need.
