I do have a local setup  like that, more or less. I use a script found here:
I use it for putting 5 PC's with a total of 12 Cores to work at 
transcoding with ffmpeg.
12 single-threaded instances to get the highest transcoded fps.
NOT the fastest way to get 1 file encoded though.
There are solutions to do that also, but then you have to evenly divide 
your source in parts equal to the amount of available cores. After 
encoding you'll have to mux the encoded parts together again.
