Techopedia explains Evaporative Cooling
Evaporative cooling works when water is pumped onto a cooling pad until it’s completely wet. A fan near the cooling pad draws air around the cooling pad and blows it out in the environment / surroundings.
The evaporative cooling technique utilizes less energy than other data center cooling techniques, in providing air conditioning services.
