Joshua mentions 'pinning' the guest OS - which sounds interesting and
we should hear more about that if possible.

If you go the route of having one machine with many cores, borrowing a
technique from big NUMA you could look at cpusets. And hey, let's be
clear - we're talking 48 cores and potentially 100's of gigabytes of
RAM in these single boxes  - they ARE big NUMA systems. What goes
around comes around etc.

I know that PBS integrates well with cpusets on the Altix, SGE should also.

Googling turns up an interesting paper:
