AFAIK it is not possible do do with virtual machines and it would kinda
defeat the object of virtualisation which is more for splitting up a
physical machine into many smaller machines.

The only system I really know anything about is ScaleMP. For this you
require an infiniband network between all the hosts and a specialised bios
and/or infiniband firmware to make it work.
