It has a single machine configuration but yes, the time investment
might only be worthwhile if you have more than one machine to work
with (or you have queues of hundreds of jobs, as it administrates that
for you). The other reason to consider it is if you have lots of
non-dedicated machines, as it can be configured to run jobs on them
when not in use, or only use a fraction of the resources (e.g. you can
take 1/4 memory and 1 processor in a quad core machine). Again,
flexible but requires time investment :)
