—This paper presents a comparison of data transfer
by using three protocols: Rsync, Rsync+SSH and Dropbox on
Ubuntu. The efficiency or the speed of the data transfer is
measured through data downloads and data retrievals. The
results show that Rysnc is the most efficient of the three
protocols in both transfer speed and bandwidth usage.
—Rsync, Rsync+SSH, Dropbox.
