RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwire - Jul 20, 2011) - Power Distribution, Inc. (PDI), providers of mission-critical power distribution equipment for data centers, alternative energy, industrial and commercial power markets, today announced that the Golden Bridge Awards has named PDI's i-CON Modular Data Center™ a finalist for the 3rd Annual 2011 Golden Bridge Awards in the category of Product Innovations in Information Technology - Data Centers. Other award finalists include Cisco Systems, Apple, Logitech, and Telx. These industry and peer awards from Golden Bridge Awards are the world's premier business awards program. Organizations from all over the world are eligible to submit nominations including public and private, for-profit and non-profit, largest to smallest including new start-ups. Winners will be honored in New York City on Wednesday, August 10, 2011 during the 3rd annual dinner and presentations.

PDI's i-CON Modular Data Center 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 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. To take an interactive, virtual tour of an i-CON container, click here.
