DataSift can transfer your data to you as a series of files using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP).
As your data is produced we'll write it into an internal queue, and then, periodically transfer it to you as a file. You can choose from a range of delivery frequencies and can also place a limit on the size of the file.
If you are unable to receive the data for any reason, we'll keep hold of it until you come back, regularly re-attempting delivery. You can also pause delivery and resume.
In any case, you'll need to be available to receive data within one hour of its production, otherwise we'll stop trying to deliver it. Take care to choose delivery frequency and size limit so that we can deliver the data at least as fast as it is produced
To get your data as files, you'll need an FTP server we can access, see details here
