I'm doing some research on grid computing, but it seems that no one uses 
Erlang for grids, even if it is a very attractive language for such 
large parallel and distributed systems.

I used Erlang to write a simulator for resource allocation algorithm in 
a grid. And I exploited multiple process support for simulating a 
400-nodes grid (a process for each node). It worked well!

But, for a real environment, I think that we *must* accept the 
monstruosities of the Globus toolkit, with its XMLRPC/SOAP/WebServices, 
etc.... It is a standard, today :-(

Ciao,
