PDI Finishes 2011 With Strong Power Distribution Market Momentum

Company Launches New Modular Data Center Line and Cloud-Based Power Monitoring While Racking Up Industry Accolades (January 11, 2012)

RICHMOND, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/12 -- Power Distribution, Inc. (PDI), providers of modular data centers and mission-critical power management and power distribution equipment for data centers, alternative energy, industrial, and commercial power markets, today underscored its strong 2011 market momentum. The company's notable progress is a direct result of its enhanced i-CON Modular Data Center™ offering as well as its new PowerMap™ software, a cloud-based power monitoring solution.

"Last year not only saw a considerable increase with regards to data storage and distribution, but also the corresponding need to properly manage energy requirements associated with running a growing portfolio of data centers," said PDI's Vice President of Marketing and Service, Dave Mulholland. "As the insatiable need for energy to power data centers in 2012 continues, we fully anticipate PDI being on the forefront of top companies sought after for power distribution, power management and modular data center needs."

Servicing the industry's power distribution needs in 2011, PDI launched several new product offerings that quickly captured the market's attention.

These innovations include:


  • Enhanced i-CON Modular Data Center - The modular data center is built from a standard ISO shipping container and customized with the key attributes of a standard brick and mortar data center. New features announced in December 2011 include a low density offering (7.5 kw per cabinet and under) and a high density offering (above 7.5 kw per cabinet), with refrigerant and ECU-based cooling -- in self-contained, modular sizes of 10 ft, 20 ft, 40 ft and 53 ft versions.
  • PDI PowerMap™ - The new software is a cloud-based offering that eliminates the need for handheld meters by automatically uploading individual circuit-based power stats and securing the information in the cloud. Additionally, users can access charts and graphs by mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops to view phone-bill quality power consumption reports.

PDI's strong momentum captured significant attention in 2011 as the following organizations selected the company for notable industry accolades:

In addition to the industry awards, PDI was also sought after for its power management/power distribution insights and invited to speak at various industry events including Datacenter Dynamics, Data Center World, 7x24 Exchange and Red Herring. Presentation topics included:

  • Energy Utilization and Cost Trends
  • Power Monitoring Techniques and Technology
