The Spread toolkit seems interesting. I just saw it. It is a toolkit for distributed computing. It supports C/C++, Java and Python.
Excerpts from the site:
[ Some of the services and benefits provided by Spread:
Reliable and scalable messaging and group communication.
A very powerful but simple API simplifies the construction of distributed architectures.
Easy to use, deploy and maintain.
Highly scalable from one local area network to complex wide area networks.
Supports thousands of groups with different sets of members.
