 +If you need to transfer large quantities of data to our system, it may be advisable to copy directly to /scratch to increase the transfer rate, since the write-performance of our home file systems can sometimes be the limiting factor. Transfering to /scratch directly will not have this limitation.

 +====  Getting Access to Scratch from Outside the GÖNET ​ via VPN (recommended) ====
 +
 +The easiest way to get access to /scratch is to use our [[en:​services:​network_services:​vpn:​start|VPN]]. After activating the VPN connection as described in the documentation and you will be inside the GÖNET and therefore be able to use transfer-scc.gwdg.de as described above.
