Maybe I was too vague in what I'm trying to do?

Each customer DB server knows what databases are running on it.

Sometimes one of the customer DB servers gets overloaded and we have
to migrate a database from one server to another.

Is there another simple solution to telling server A to dump the DB to
disk, and tell server B to pick it up?

I don't think that a work queue will work here, because only one DB is
relevant for the task... setting up 40 work queues for the 40 db
servers seems quite messy, and then I need to maintain yet another
