How to copy files between two accounts in AWS.

If you have two accounts in AWS with one linux host in each - what options do you have to copy files (sftp) between the two hosts?
What would be the options? What would be the fastest? The least costly?

As per the above scenario you explained , you need to do VPC peering . So the above condition will work. VPC peering can be done between two accounts as well. Here is the document how to do it

SFTP is the option to copy files between two host , doesn't matter whether it is in different account

Thanks Prabhin. Perhaps I wasn't clear enough. My question is more one of routing of traffic than application for copying files.
For instance say that Account A has subnet and Account B has subnet Now host A at want to communicate with host B at What needs to be implemented so that host A can speak to host B for the purposes of copy files (say by SFTP)?
