Depends on your definition of "large".

On our IBM OpenPOWER 720 cluster (46 nodes, 184 CPUs, SuSE SLES 9) we use 
Torque very happily with Moab.  We had some issues early on as it hadn't 
really been ported, but those were sorted out long ago now.

They're both running in 32-bit mode as Linux distros on PPC64 have a 64-bit 
kernel but a 32-bit userspace (with 64-bit libraries) and the compilers 
produce 32-bit code by default.

How's that ?
