1.  centralized authentication so users known by all machines at both locations
2.  auto mounted home directories by all machines for all users
3.  ssh used to login to a machine
4.  jobs are single jobs, low data to start the job, then a compressed tar file to return to user
5.  data can use cp and no ftp or scp necessary

And if it matters, the clusters are small.
Site 1:  5 machines, 15 cpus
Site 2:  3 machines, 18 cpus

Currently only one queue on Site 1 needs to be used from Site 2 and no jobs from Site 1 need to run on Site 2.
