Options for a very large computation

I'm solving a 24-by-24 linear system symbolically. After
getting what I want using NullSpace, I get a very complicated
expression in 4 variables. When I try to Simplify the expression (before
viewing) my system dies. Either I run out of memory, or, when I
add TimeConstraints -> Infinity to the Simplify function, it takes
"forever" (nothing after 8 hours).

Two questions: (1) Any suggestions for how I can get more processing power, 
memory to do the calculations.

(2) I have access to more power, but the programs need to be written in
C++. Is there a way to convert the Mathematica code and the Simplify 
command, in particular,  to C++ and run it offline?
