This is the best practices guide for setting up an FTP Server for use with ClustrixDB Fast Backup and Restore, including how to avoid bottlenecks and optimizing for maximum throughput. 

ClustrixDB implements fast backup and restore as a binary backup mechanism which works at the row level. Each ClustrixDB node sends its data directly to the FTP backup target in parallel, eliminating bottlenecks and allowing backup speed to scale with cluster size. Similarly for restore, the initiating node coordinates with other participating nodes in parallel to read from the dump file and restore replicas.

ClustrixDB also supports SFTP with password-base authentication.
