Aspen has been in the high performance computing (HPC) manufacturing business since 1982, and has been manufacturing and delivering HPC clusters since 1998. Since 1998 Aspen Systems has delivered thousands of turn-key HPC clusters to government, corporations, and universities across the world. Aspen Systems has also built many supercomputers that are in the TOP100 list of supercomputers in the world.
Free Design Assistance – Our sales engineers will work closely with you to understand your specific needs and desires while presenting the different options and their trade-offs, resulting in the optimal cost-effective high performance computing solution design for you.
Custom Built – Like most HPC vendors Aspen offers a standardized build and package selection that follows HPC best practices. However, unlike some other HPC vendors, we also offer you the opportunity to customize your cluster hardware and software, with options and capabilities tuned to your specific needs and your environment.
Turn-Key – Aspen normally ships clusters to our customers as complete turn-key solutions, including full remote testing by you before the cluster is shipped. Often, all a customer will need to do is unpack the racks, roll them into place, connect power and networking, and begin computing. Of course our involvement doesn't end when the system is delivered.
Expertise – With many years of experience in the high-performance computing industry, Aspen is uniquely qualified to provide unparalleled systems, infrastructure, and management support tailored to your unique needs. Aspen can handle all aspects of your HPC needs, including facility design or upgrades, supplemental cooling , power management, remote access solutions, software optimization and many additional managed services .
Superior Service – Aspen offers industry leading support options. Our Standard Service package is free of charge to every customer, and we offer additional support packages, such as our future proofing Flex Service or our fully managed Total Service package , along with many additional Add-on services too!. With our On-site services, Aspen can come to you to fully integrate your new cluster into your existing infrastructure or perform other upgrades and changes you require. We also offer standard and custom Training packages for your administrators and your end users , or even informal customized one on one assistance.
Aspen Systems can customize a turn-key HPC cluster to your exact needs. Here are some of the more popular HPC clusters that we offer:
Commodity x86/x86-64 clusters provide the most flexibility, significant cost/performance benefits, the best balance between computational load and memory bandwidth, and do not require as large of a degree of code optimization as some other architectures. Most parallel applications available today are ported to commodity clusters and it's very likely your application will run well on one.
GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) Computing Clusters are x86/x86_64 systems that are configured with Graphics Processing Units. This type of cluster utilizes the massive floating point computational power of a modern GPU to perform general purpose computing instead of simply rendering graphics.
The Intel® Cluster Ready program makes it easier to capitalize on high-performance computing (HPC). Choose certified Intel Cluster Ready systems and registered applications, and be confident your cluster will work as it should, right away. Select a cluster powered by the new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 series and experience breakthrough intelligent performance and dramatic improvements for data-intensive applications. Start solving new problems sooner and decrease total cost of ownership.
Visualization clusters are x86/x86_64 systems that are configured with Graphics Processing Units just as GPGPU clusters are. Instead of using the installed GPUs for floating point calculations for a specific model, each GPU is used to perform graphics processing. Some rendering and visualization applications tile visualization jobs, so each GPU renders a portion of the output, while others time or frame slice the problem in order to generate the final product.
