Ruby / Rails: distributed background processing (workers on different hosts) - which technology stack to use?

Alex Kalinin asked in Ruby

We need to perform background tasks on different servers, and return the results to the central database.

In order to make a decision about which Worker to assign a task to, the Task Manager must be able to get information from the Worker about its status (how many tasks have been completed, how many are still in the pool, the current running task..)

Which technology stack would you recommend using?
