[GE users] SGE and multiple cluster

Grid Engine only supports a single global scheduling policy currently. 
That means that if cluster1 and cluster2 need different policies, e.g. 
one's FIFO and the other's fair share, it's not going to work.  If 
they're policy compatible, however, you can merge them together and use 
fair share of functional policies to give the cluster users target 
shares of the greater cluster.

Another option is to set up two distinct clusters and use the Service 
Domain Manager (Hedeby) component to broker resources between them. 
That gives you separate scheduling policies and separation of workloads, 
but still lets you share resources between the two clusters.
