CHICAGO, Oct. 27, 2020 — Headquartered in Greater Chicago since 1995; Koi Computers is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The company is an Intel Platinum Partner, Intel HPC Data Center Specialist, AMD Elite Partner and an NVIDIA Preferred Partner for high performance server, cluster and workstation solutions. The company has also placed several HPC Clusters on the “Top 500” and “Green 500” Lists.
Koi Computers has a strong track record of developing, building and deploying HPC technology for the U.S. Federal Government with satisfactory ratings in CPARS and Past Performance. The company is a Prime Contract Holder of the GSA IT Schedule 70, NASA SEWP V, and NITAAC CIO-CS contracts-with other contracts currently in the works.
Twenty years ago, Koi Computers competed its way into a leading U.S. Department of Energy Laboratory—giving the company an entry into Federal Government contracting and the ability to quickly expand. 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.”
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. These elite contracts, vetted and awarded based on past performance, technical capability and price, further cemented the company’s credibility as an established and proven Federal Government contractor.
Over the past 25 years, the company has weathered the dot.com bubble, 9/11 and the resulting economic turndown, the 2007 Great Recession, and now, the COVID-19 pandemic.
Koi Computers is also poised for the next 25 years. Koi Computers Federal Business Development Manager Catherine Ho said, “Through it all, our company’s agility, adaptability and flexibility have helped us emerge stronger and strategically positioned to respond to any economic climate. We have all worked hard to stay ahead of innovation, react quickly to client needs, and accurately predict trends.”
Right now, the family’s next generation is learning the nuances of the business, expanding strategic technology partnerships and laying the groundwork for future success.
Stanley Ho and Fanny Ho, who founded the company back in 1995, continue to keep the focus on core values and continuous improvement. “We are perpetually advancing the speed, capacity, reliability, flexibility and security of the products we offer,” Stanley said. “I am proud of our reputation for integrity. We have all worked very hard to get where we are.”
Koi Computers Vice President of Engineering Simon Ho added, “As a company, we 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 changing infrastructures and needs.”
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.”
