In brief, the NAGRP Data Repository is an open platform data host, for any

is a file transport service for members of the community to send files to

What's the difference between NAGRP Data Repository and the

transfer large volumn of data, user can request for our ftp services through
I have a large data set to send but it takes forever to upload.
Is that normal?
