Swarm rendering/ multiple computer batch render setup

Is there any ability to set up swarm rendering/ batch rendering spread out across multiple computers? This would be very helpful as were looking at quiet a large batch in the near future. I could imagine just splitting up the batch across multiple computers and having them work separately but the ability to gather the resources of multiple computers across a network would be really helpful.

i handle it that way that i first test how fast each computer processes to images and then calculate with a self made basic program for the atari st how many frames and with which start and end frame should be processed by which computer to hopefully finish in a similar time.
