Techniques to ingesting large color pdf's into a content management system

Hello, I'm trying to find some techniques that can reduce the time of injecting large 2 GB color files into a content management system. I've heard of solutions such as breaking up the file into smaller files, processing them and then putting the document back together in the content management system. Any thoughts on this?

How about asking for a PDF designed for the web.  At 2GB, that sounds like something designed for print at super-high resolution.

Many of the files that we bring our our floor plans, drawings and pictures in combination with regular documents so we want to be able to take in these files without thrashing our system. This is why we are looking at ways to breaking the large file down into pieces , process them and bring the file together to be placed in the system

There are PDF splitters out there that can break a PDF into component pages and then you can use a server-side script to re-assemble them but that's a helluva lot of work for little reward.  Why is FTPing the file to the server not an option?

I believe we need some type of ingestion server to handle large PDF's

Nah.  FTP should be perfectly fine.  Are these files in your control or being submitted by clients?

Also, what's an "ingestion server"?
