How is large data sent over RESTful web services in .NET RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm designing a Web based application that needs to be available as a RESTful Web service to clients over the Internet. The size of the data to be sent as a response can be very huge ranging from 1 GB to about 50 GB. I believe it is not possible to send such a huge response over as a Web response.

    What are some possible ways in which I can send such data across? Are there any industry-standard approaches to sending such data across? Or do I need to share it on some FTP site once such a request is received?

    Appreciate any inputs on this.

  • In these kind of scenarios you can expose that data as zip file via FTP or a http url location for downloading it.
