Remote upload
When there is a transfer of data from a remote system to another remote system,
the process is called "remote uploading". This is used by some online file hosti
ng services. Remote uploading is also used in situations where the computers tha
t need to share data are located on a distant high-speed LAN, and the remote con
trol is being performed using a comparatively slow dial-up modem connection.
For example:
The user remotely accesses a file hosting service at MyRemoteHost.
The user finds a public file at PublicRemoteHost and wants to keep a copy in
their MyRemoteHost.
To have it done they "remote upload" the file from PublicRemoteHost to MyRem
oteHost.
None of the hosts are located on the user's local network.
Without remote uploading functionality, the user would be required to download t
he file first to their local host and then upload it to the remote file hosting
server.
Where the connection to the remote computers is via a dial-up connection, the tr
ansfer time required to download locally and then upload again could increase fr
om seconds to hours or days.
Generally accepted use of the term "upload"
To "upload" something is generally understood to mean, "putting something on the
internet", for example, uploading photographs to myspace or facebook. Contribut
ions to online-archives may also be referred to as "uploads", for example books,
audit reports, fax transmission reports, etc..
