bbcp is a fast data
transfer utility developed by Andy Hanushevsky at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory at
Stanford. Using this utility one can achieve substantial increase of data transfer rates over
WAN compared to traditional SCP/SFTP. You should be aware that bbcp does not encrypt data. Only
authentication is encrypted (bbcp authenticates via ssh, which should be present on the system).
If this is a concern, revert to Globus or SCP/SFTP.
