Applying SOA to a large amount of data

My question is about performance when we are talking about a large amount of data. Can SOA be applied?

My question is about performance when we are talking about a large amount of data. Can SOA be applied? Thanks.
In my experience, SOA-type architecture is well-suited to ask "atomic-type" questions but not for sending large volumes of data. For example, suppose you want to know how much it will cost you to send a 2-Kg parcel to a particular country. You could ask the post office (assuming that they have a SOA-type system), a SOAP message will ask the question and a response would be the actual cost.

However, I have found that sending a very large amount of data is not suitable. Web services usually time-out and the message would be too large.
