HPC Cluster/Server Solution Provider Koi Computers Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Koi Computers is celebrating its 25th anniversary as one of the leading HPC cluster, server and high-end workstation providers in the U.S. The company’s rapid growth and staying power are attributed to its core values – integrity, reliability and commitment to client experience excellence.

Koi Computers is also positioning itself for the next 25 years. As a family-owned company, multiple generations have a strong vision for future growth.  Koi Computers Federal Business Development Manager Catherine Ho said, “We have all worked hard to stay ahead of innovation, react quickly to client needs, accurately predict trends, but most importantly, we continue to have a vision. The company has weathered through the dot.com bubble, 9/11 and the resulting stock market crash, the 2007 Great Recession, and now, the COVID-19 pandemic.  Through it all, our company’s agility, adaptability and flexibility has helped us emerge stronger and strategically positioned to respond to these turbulent times.”   

Pivotal Milestones

Early on, Koi Computers competed its way into a leading U.S. Department of Energy Laboratory. This lab gave Koi Computers their first foray into Federal Government contracting and the rest is history.  Koi Computers President Fanny Ho said, “I am so grateful for that one opportunity. We worked hard, remained competitive, really stuck to the core values of our business and never lost sight of that.” Through these and other opportunities, Koi Computers was able to continue to expand its niche within the high-performance computing vertical.

 Over the past two and a half decades, Koi Computers achieved many more milestones and continues to experience double-digit organic growth.  The company has also placed several HPC Clusters on the “Top 500” and “Green 500” Lists.  In 2015, Koi Computers was awarded both the elite National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement V (SEWP V) and National Institutes of Health Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC) Chief Information Officer – Commodities and Solutions (CIO-CS) Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWAC).  These elite contracts, vetted and awarded based on past performance, technical capability and price, further cemented the company’s status as a trusted, established and responsible Federal Government contractor. 

 The Future

As the company looks ahead, the next generation is learning the nuances of the business, expanding strategic technology partnerships and positioning the company for future success.

Koi Computers Vice President of Engineering Simon Ho said, “As a company, we are aware of the rapidly emerging technologies and the transition into the different cloud models. We also recognize there will be a growing demand for HPC solutions, especially within segments such as AI and Deep Learning. We continue to develop and fine tune our strategies to capitalize on these ever-changing infrastructures and needs. But at the same time, we ensure that our quality control and evaluation of new technology meets the stringent standards and requirements of Koi Computers and our clients.”   

Catherine agreed, saying, “There will be a continual need for us to expand our technology partnerships and our Federal Government contracts portfolio, but our expansion will always align with our vision and focus on our core business values. Simon and I both have a legal background, and this is a great asset for not just our company, but for our Federal Government clients. In addition to helping us navigate contractual requirements, it ensures that the environment of precision, accountability, and professional integrity continues as we move the company forward.” 

Stanley Ho and Fanny Ho, who founded the company back in 1995, know the next generation will stay focused on the company’s core values and continuous improvement as the company moves into the future. 

Stanley said, “We are continually advancing the speed, capacity, reliability, flexibility and security of the products we offer. Continued improvement gives us an edge in both driving the market and, more importantly, serving the market. We are proud of our reputation for integrity and that we offer competitive products backed by the best possible customer service.”

Fanny summarized, “All we can prove is that we will deliver and that we will honor what we say. We have been doing that for the past 25 years and will continue to do so in the future.”
