SharePoint 2010 Stretched Farm

Very good information.
 
Killing two birds with one stone: SharePoint HA and DR with stretch farm, and everything you want to know about it

Setting-up SharePoint 2010 stretched farm

It looks like that SharePoint 2013 does not support stretched farm, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262485%28v=office.15%29.aspx#hwLocServers
All servers that belong to a server farm, including database servers, must physically reside in the same datacenter. Redundancy and failover between closely located data centers that are configured as a single farm ("stretched farm”) is not supported in SharePoint 2013. 

But as this the comments from this blog shows, it depends and it is often case by case.
