Apologies for the delay.
Thanks for your message. We don't have experience with with systems 
other than LSF. I did talk with some of the developers on the project 
and they suggest that Lava might be sufficient, but as this hasn't been 
tested, we are unsure.

I hope this helps and best of luck with your project.
