Why SFTP ??
In most instances, SFTP is the best choices when dealing with the manipulation of larger quantities of data. Rather than simply giving one-way access, SFTP services allow users an enormous amount of control, and this can be extremely beneficial to individuals and business which update regularly.
It has several common use cases, including the following:
Backup : SFTP can be used by backup services or individual users to backup data from one location to a secured backup server running SFTP services.
Replication : Similar to backup, replication involves duplication of data from one system to another but takes a more comprehensive approach to provide higher availability and resilience. SFTP can also be used to facilitate this.
Access and data loading : SFTP is also commonly used to access shared web hosting and cloud services as a mechanism to load data onto a remote system.
