By "batch" are you talking command line scripts, or about something like the workload queuing system found on mainframes?

command line batch processing is a general thing and as you suspected ia m asking about as there in main frames.

how efficient is ubuntu regarding this issue

I've never tried it on a PC, but guess that it could be done. I'm a bit rusty on the details (it's been about 20 years since I've used a mainframe) but expect that you'd need some means of job submission, a job queuing system, some way of co-ordinating the number of jobs active at one time, and some way of routing the output back to the right place.
