Distributed Rendering on a Cluster

Greetings! I hope i’m posting this in the right forum.
I should soon have available to me a rack server sytem
with 12 hp blade servers (Dual Quad-core Xeon processors,
8 GBs ram each) configured as a cluster.

I’m wondering if Blender would work well for distributed
rendering on such a setup, and if so, would either a
Windows or Ubuntu environment be the better choice.
Later i’ll be able to provide detailed specs, but for now a
general Yae or Nae will suffice before I proceed too far.

Or, at the very least, if someone can point me in the right
direction to educate myself on this topic it would be greatly

Thanks in advance!

PS: Just occurred to me… cluster or grid setup? :confused:
