Fastest way to connect to local drives?

What’s the fastest way to connect and use local drives connected to a mac running OSX server? You guys have the ability to connect via FTP, WebDAV, SFTP, and odrive File Server. So far, odrive FIle server seems like the fastest technology to use. Can you confirm?

Loving Odrive! Thanks!


I would say the fastest and easiest is SFTP. SSH is already built in, so all you have to do is make sure it is enabled and link it up. Easy peasy :slightly_smiling:

Thanks for the reply! Is that the fastest technology MB/s wise?

It should be very fast (fast enough for most use cases) if you connect over the LAN, using the private IP of the system. It is easy enough to setup that you should give it a shot and see how it works out for you.

Take a look at this thread for a simple way to gauge speed: Storage service speed testing (Windows and OS X)

What is your use case?
