what is the fastest and most reliable way of transferring a lot of files?

I am currently attempting to transfer over 1 million files from one server to another. Using wget, it seems to be extremely slow, probably because it starts a new transfer after the previous one has been completed.

Question: Is there a faster non-blocking (asynchronous) way to do the transfer? I do not have enough space on the first server to compress the files into tar.gz and transferring them over. Thanks!

My answer:


Put the files on a hard drive and ship it via FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc.
