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.
