    NFS performance is limited by the fact it is a file system so sees only
    what the file system can tell it. It also takes a hit because it has
    strict rules on committing data to disk before acknowledging it (so data
    is not lost over a crash). That makes NFS a bigger user of CPU resources
    and more disk dependant than FTP which simply throws the entire file
    down the pipe when in binary mode, does no processing and makes no
    guarantee about restarts or what hits disk
