file transfer

File transfer is the process of transmitting files over a computer network. There are a number of different ways to transfer files and files can be sent to different types of networks. File transfers can take place via email, over a messaging service, using a peer-to-peer network, through a network file system, or using a dedicated file transfer service. Terms like upload, download, push and pull, local and remote, and to the cloud refer to specific aspects of file transfer.

FTP is one of the most well-known options for file transfer. However, managing FTP systems can be difficult to use. Most importantly, FTP is very slow when transmitting large files. Many companies today are looking at FTP alternatives for their file transfer needs, as there are a number of newer, more efficient options for file transfer.
