To encrypt and compress inbound files, use PGP encryption. PGP encryption includes file compression.
For delivery to Amazon S3, you must use
.gz or uncompressed files. Compressed files must be 1 GB or smaller. If the files are larger, please discuss the file and transfer process with Customer Care. Although Audience Manager can handle very large files, there may be ways to reduce the file size or make transfer of data more efficient.
Your FTP client must use binary mode to transfer compressed or encrypted files. Compressed or encrypted files sent in ASCII mode will corrupt the data transfer file.
.gzcompressed file is 1 GB.
