SGE is the grid/scheduling engine from Sun; was publicly available on 
the no-longer-accepting-customers Sun Grid Service, but SGE is still 
alive (done in Germany, I think).

When you rented CPU-time on SGE, you couldn't always guarantee what 
ports you got, as another program on the same physical host could have 
taken them; kind of makes a mess of your bindings. I don' t know if that 
is fixed
