Transferring Files

P: 3
Need a recommendation on how to transfer large files. Sick of using SFTP or free cloud platforms that take forever~
Files range in size, usually a few gb+, and file type varies.

What's wrong with using SFTP?

You could use SCP.

If you're looking to speed up the transfer process, changing the protocol isn't going to help much but compressing the files might, however, you then would need to factor in the extra time to do the compression.

To speed up the process, you first need to find and reduce the network and hardware bottlenecks on your end and if needed/possible increase your bandwidth from your service provider.
