Algorithm owners can request hosting of their algorithm on the Food Security TEP where to be processed data are readily available without need for download. Algorithms hosted on the Food Security TEP will be available as an operational 24/7 web service (“Algo-as-a-Service). A scalable and robust cloud environment allows a large number of users to access it in parallel. The Food Security TEP user interface does allow to run processing services in an automated way, so continuous delivery of data products without a constant need for user interactions is possible.

Algorithm Hosting Offers include direct support from the Food Security TEP operations team which is reachable via email and, during nominal working hours, via phone and instant messaging application. As the service offers include a limited amount of technical support (see below), please note that our offers can be enhanced by additional Support Upgrades.

Note: The ICT costs for the execution of algorithms shared by the respective owners are either covered by users of a shared algorithm service or may be sponsored by the ESA EO Network of Resources. Please contact us for more details.
