Personally, I would use rsync for this. scp would get the job done, but rsync has a lot of niceties, like incrementally sending data, compression, etc. and it can all work over SSH, provided both servers have rsync.

    You read the man page for rsync, and maybe search google for some examples. – EEAA Dec 20 '14 at 6:08

Sneakernet.

If that's not possible, I'll second Wesley's scp.
