I just thought I'd post this here in case anyone might be interested.

Slurm is a resource manager program used on several of the top500 
supercomputers. It can use cgroups (one of the concepts used as a 
foundation to lxc) for launching user jobs in a manner that allows a 
system administrator to finely tune and control the resources they 
consume at a very large scale.

It's available under a GPLv2 license.
