You have quite few options here:

  1. You could go with SFTP copy.
  2. SCP is another option
  3. rsync tool can be great if you transfer lots of data and expect failures (like network outages) while copying.

If you use SFTP then in case you experience failure you have to do it all over again as you might not know what was copied and what not. I would go for rsync.
