  • Commitment: Aspen Systems Direct has always been dedicated to delivering the highest-quality, custom designed and configured systems to its customers. Customers know us, know they can count on us for all of their computing needs. Our commitment to quality is backed by our certification as an ISO 9001:2008 company, and shows that our commitment to quality is an integral part of our management structure and all of our processes.

  • Trust: Our customers trust us because they know that we honor our relationships with every customer, and are committed to ensuring their satisfaction with a flawless ordering and delivery process. Also we provide industry-leading support and go the extra mile to ensure that our customers are 100% satisfied.

  • Partnership: We work with both customers and suppliers to provide the very latest engineering innovations to meet every possible need that arises.


  • Manufacturing: All systems are assembled in our state-of-the-art facility located in Wheat Ridge, CO. Our facility has been certified as adherent to the highest quality standards and was awarded ISO 9001:2008 certification. Our facility is also fully compliant with ANSI/ESD S20:20. standards.

  • Testing: All systems are subjected to an extensive burn-in process to ensure that all components meet our high quality control standards. The Aspen Integrated Manufacturing Environment (AIME) makes sure that your system(s) are assembled correctly and operating properly by performing a defined set of in-depth automated and stand-alone test loops on each component of your individual systems. The system must pass all tests and be verified by our engineering staff prior to shipping. This ensures that systems are complete, working, and capable of meeting the high standards that our customers expect. For more information, visit our Manufacturing Excellence page.


  • Engineering: We have designed and built high performance computing clusters that have ranked in the top 10 fastest systems in the world. Our engineering team works closely with the leading manufactures of high performance computing components from Intel to AMD to Kingston to Mellanox and more. This ensures that our systems use the latest technology and have world-class throughput and processing power with the lowest possible energy signatures.

  • Design: Aspen Systems Direct gives customers two capabilities: customers can configure and order systems themselves online, or they can consult with Aspen's senior engineers for free to craft a custom configuration that meets their exact specifications. These two different approaches are designed for both customers who know exactly what they need and customers who need coaching and assistance matching components and design characteristics to create an optimum design.


Aspen Systems Direct delivers high-end computing solutions to government, corporate, educational and research customers throughout the world. Our users include scientists, mathematicians, chemists, geologists, physicists, hardware developers, astronomers, financial analysts, software developers and graphics professionals – just to name a few.
