Power Distribution, Inc. Unveils Interactive 360-Degree Tour of i-CON Modular Data Center™

Online Virtual Tour Gives Facility Managers Remote, 24x7 Convenient Access to PDI's Industry-Leading Containerized Data Center

RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwire - March 23, 2011) -  Power Distribution, Inc. (PDI), a leading provider of mission-critical power distribution equipment for data centers, alternative energy, industrial, and commercial power markets, today unveiled an interactive, 360-degree tour of its innovative modular data center, the i-CON. PDI's i-CON is an easy-to-service solution built from a standard ISO shipping container, customized with the key attributes of a standard brick and mortar data center. The design is incredibly rapid to deploy and significantly more cost effective to customers. The new virtual tour gives prospective modular data center users a convenient platform to view the innovation built into every i-CON container, anytime, from any Internet browser.

PDI demonstrated this new technology of the i-CON earlier this month at the Datacenter Dynamics (DCD) event in New York City to an audience of over 1,200 attendees. Dave Mulholland, VP of Marketing for PDI, states, "The Datacenter Dynamics show in NY offered a great venue for PDI to bring the i-CON Modular Datacenter™ onto the exhibit hall floor with the 360-degree tour." This new interactive video tour comes at the urging of facility managers interested in the many benefits of containerized data center solutions who are unable to experience the i-CON in person. Through this unique, 360-degree tour viewers can click their way through the 40-foot container and see individual components and features as they navigate through the video.

"PDI has raised the bar on product demonstrations by developing a virtual tour of the highly popular i-CON Modular Datacenter™. Users can now leverage this online experience to get a closer look inside this innovative solution," said Evan Owen, Marketing Manager at PDI. "The key elements of the i-CON's features are captured and demonstrated as the self-guided tour unfolds."

The i-CON helps customers dramatically increase their IT capacity, power, efficiency, and return-on-investment -- while reducing capital expenditures and time typically associated with the deployment of traditional, green field data centers. Traditional data centers typically take 12-24 months on average to deploy versus 10-12 weeks for an i-CON deployment. Other PDI products include the Branch Circuit Monitoring System (BCMS), the Powerwave Bus System, transformers, custom magnetics and inductors. PDI is rapidly expanding in the modular data center market across the globe, and has presence in more than 20 countries.
