Off hand I'd say take a look at rocks cluster linux distribution or 
similar cluster distribution/management software. If this sort of 
flexibility is not available take a look at cfengine 
http://cfengine.org/ which automates sysadmin tasks across a number of 
machines. Not knowing what contraints your operating under and only 
having just started to look at cfengine myself I'm only guessing at it's 
suitability. Having said that I  suspect this is the answer to your query.
