You might want to take a look at GridFTP from Globus (http:// 
globus.org). Among other things, it has support for parallel data  
streams and is specifically designed for transferring lots of data  
between clusters. It's distributed as part of the Toolkit, and it's  
not too hard to build /just/ GridFTP.

As with any recommended software, YMMV.
