Data Center Power Agreement Extends Market Reach for Power Distribution, Mardix
Power Distribution, Inc., made tech headlines last month when it brought its power distribution portfolio to India’s complex data centers and it’s doing it again this month with a new five-year agreement with Mardix.
According to a DatacenterDynamics report, Power Distribution has been a data center power player since 1978. The company brings innovative data center power quality solutions to an ever-changing industry. It has enjoyed the distinction of being the largest independent designer and manufacturer of data center power distribution equipment in North America.
Mandrix is positioned as a leader in the switchgear industry and offers critical power systems that provide services to the highest level in the industry. It integrates equipment servicing, switchgear, and power management for data center power needs.
The data center power deal inked between Power Distribution and Mardix deepens the penetration of Power Distribution’s PowerWave Bus System into markets in the Middle East, Europe, and the United Kingdom at a time when the industry there is showing a need for data center power solutions. Furthermore, the agreement will strengthen Mardix’s business market solution in these areas.
One of the reasons for the projected popularity of the Power Distribution solution is that the company’s IT space is becoming limited, particularly in the financial sector. The PowerWave solution is robust enough to offer advantages where space is limited. It is already proving to be a standout in the monitoring platform arena, the platform of which is a patented Branch Circuit Monitoring System solution.
Mardix’s data center power management products offer data center power hardware that delivers scalable solutions that are easy to monitor and control. Companies are constantly looking for areas to cut costs, and by taking on switchgear and data center power management solutions from Mardix, companies are able to avoid downtime, save on energy bills, and make better use of the equipment they have.
As a provider, Mardix is known for delivering on its promise of designing and implementing systems for a variety of project sizes with its fully endorsed and factory-tested systems. The company’s switchgear solutions make them a leader in the UK for “high power switchgear solutions.” One of these prized components is the intelligent Power Distribution Unit technology, aka iPDU. The switchgear components are full of features and are built with the highest quality standards.
The licensing deal struck between the American and UK companies is sure to bring further penetration into new markets that need the data center power solutions offered by these providers. At the same time, each will be able to strengthen their market reach and extend additional value to a wide customer base.

As the need to balance current and future IT requirements against resource consumption becomes more urgent, the data center industry increasingly views capacity planning as a way of achieving a critical component to planning a new build or retrofit. Data center capacity planning can be a complex undertaking with far-reaching strategic and operational implications. DCD Intelligence has therefore compiled this White Paper in order to share some industry insights and lessons on the practical steps that are needed to develop a successful power and capacity planning strategy.[Read More]
Server Technology had the recent opportunity, along with other partner companies, to participate in discussions across the globe with data center IT and facility managers as part of a road show seminar: Data Center Energy and Operational Efficiency.[Read More]
The demand for more power in the computer cabinet has led many data centers to upgrade to three phase power distribution. Proper three phase power distribution has traditionally meant dividing up power up into multiple branches within the rack PDU (Power Distribution Unit). In this paper we will explore the advantages of a new, less common approach to PDU design by means of alternating each phase on a per-receptacle basis instead of a per branch basis.[Read More]
Increasing powering and cooling demands within the data center have been the topics of choice for Data Center (DC) and Facility Managers for several years now. Increased power demands are a result of the need for more compute power and higher density devices have resulted. These high density installations include stacks and stacks of servers and the trend of implementing blade servers within these server "farms." Cooling problems are a direct result of the increased power demands based on the simple fact that more power increases the demand for cooling.[Read More]
