I don't have first hand experience with this stuff, but I was
researching this style of computing a while back. I would look at what
the scipy project is doing, and in general look at the techniques used
by the gene crunching folks (e.g., http://biopython.org/), as they
tend to use scripting, parallelization, and large data sets.

I liked these presentations, apparently produced by Enthought. They
may be a bit dated at this point, however.


Page 47 of talk 2 starts an overview of parallel programming with
python. COW might meet your needs as it's a pretty low rent method for
parallel job execution, and probably easier than cooking up your own
RPC solution.

Good luck. Sounds like fun!
