The more specific question would be whether the code on one web server can access a database on another server. Assuming that the proper permissions can be set up, then yes, you should be able to directly access another database rather than going through a web page.

It may also be possible to access a remote database through its web pages too. It would require writing code to interact with the web page, but it is possible.
