[FFmpeg-user] Best way to stream to remote server

I'm outputting HLS (with a couple different bit rates) to a local drive 
for viewing. However, now I need to move it to a remote server with more 
bandwidth (but less processing power). I know I can use ftp from within 
ffmpeg to save to the remote network drive, and I could also use sshfs 
to do it (and would prefer something a bit more secure anyway) but I'm 
wondering if anyone has recommendation on most efficient way. Can sshfs 
keep up (yes, the bandwidth is not a problem), does ftp cause problems?

Thanks for any thoughts,
