Well, anything that doesn't encrypt would be worth a shot.
Here's a basic scp to /dev/null
scp /tmp/tempfile othermachine:/dev/null
tempfile 100% 1000MB 37.0MB/s 00:27
Compare that with reading the same file over a basic NFS mount:
$ dd if=/nfs/tempfile of=/dev/null
1048576000 bytes (1.0 GB) copied, 10.3707 seconds, 101 MB/s
If you've got slow processors you'll find that scp -c blowfish is noticeably
faster, but the faster the cores are, the less you'll notice an improvement.
