For heavy-duty linear algebra you might want to use Lacaml:

  http://ocaml.info/home/ocaml_sources.html#lacaml

It interfaces almost all functions in BLAS and LAPACK and allows
executing multiple computations in several threads in parallel on
multi-core machines.  If you combine this with some tool for
distributed computation (e.g. MPI-based, etc.), you should get what
you need.

Regards,
Markus
