Hi BW,

Read only versus Read/Write. Profile Servers, Product Servers, 
Query Services, and the like are information integration components
that federate distributed, virtual data systems. They don't put any 
data back in. CAS not only reads from underlying data sources, 
and queries them, but it writes back into them too.

Not always, depends on how you entered the system, some folks
go to CAS directly.
