Achievements and Awards

Over the years, our company has been able to support our claims to excellence by receiving countless awards. In 2002, we were featured on the Top500 list, where our build was the eighth fastest computer in the world. In addition, we have been awarded ColoradoBiz Magazine’s Top 250 Private companies and ranked on Deloitte and Touche’s Technology Fast 50 Program for Colorado for no less than four consecutive years each. Furthermore, we have partnered with other major corporations, and we have been granted the Lockheed Martin Star Supplier Award, Intel Premier Provider Award, and AMD Platinum Solution Provider Award, just to name a few. This list of achievements, although incomplete, is not only humbling, but it also gives Aspen Systems the inspiration and encouragement to continue forging to the vanguard of HPC.

Intel Technology Provider – Platinum 2016. HPC Data Center Specialist.

Our business is High Performance Computing (HPC) — developing, building and supporting supercomputers that help solve problems and answer questions that would be impossible to address otherwise.



The leadership at Aspen Systems have been working in the industry as CEO/Owner, Engineers, and Sales since the 80s and 90s. The years of experience have taught them how to, not only be successful in what they do, but to train others in how to become successful. Even today, our leadership team takes the time to keep abreast of the latest technology trends and participates in training sessions. The leadership team is stern, but flexible; courageous, but patient; and humble, but responsible. They all still wear many hats to get the job done and take pride in the work that they, and the rest of the team perform.

Giving Back

At Aspen Systems, our passion isn’t just for High Performance Computing. We also believe in giving back. Many of us have served, or are serving as members of a Board of Directors for multiple different organizations. Additionally, our company and its employees consistently provide sponsorships for different events and organizations. We are actively involved in the community and our families enjoy participating in charitable events too, such as biking, running, walking and triathlons. We aren’t just watching from the stands, but we are on the court, helping to make our communities and professions better.


At Aspen Systems, we are committed to minimizing our impact on the environment. We go further than simply complying with all environmental laws and regulations. We have recycling programs in place to lessen the harmful effects that manufacturing High Performance Computers causes, and encourage awareness and communication to all of our stakeholders concerning environmental strategies. We also offer a wide range of sustainable computing solutions, including servers, power supplies, and software that are low-power and high-efficiency. Many of the servers we carry are 80PLUS Certified or better, helping customers reduce the use of nonrenewable resources even after they leave our facility. We review our environmental strategy periodically, and make changes when necessary to ensure that we continue to exceed industry standard. With these practices in mind, it is clear to see that Aspen Systems takes pride in bettering our environment.

In the complex world of HPC many sciences and disciplines can get infinitely granular and problems will arise. You can leverage our great vendor relationships for getting the best in-class products, services and solutions for your unique HPC challenges. We also offer something we believe is more valuable: trust and integrity within our network of engineers and scientists to assist us should the need arise (as we often do for them). We’ve formed these valuable partnerships over the last 35 years by working side-by-side with them. In everything we do, in everything we ship, this circle of knowledge is delivered to you.
