I guess the title of http://www.rabbitmq.com/distributed.html might have 
given you the impression that to get a message flowing from an app on 
one machine to an app on another machine you'd need brokers on both 
machines and connect them with clustering, federation, or shovel.

That is not the case.

AMQP is inherently distributed - it is a network protocol, so it's quite 
typical to have a single broker to which apps connect from wherever they 
are running. Apps and brokers do *not* have to reside on the same 
machine (and, typically don't).
