I am not familiar with the working of the process as well. It is usually done by Network and Database management teams. You can check within your organization about this. For reading up on this, google search "ETL process"
As for the Adobe FTP server, Customer Care provides 10 GB of complimentary server space for temporary storage of data. You can ask your organization's supported user to open a ticket with us for this. However, I would recommend reusing the ones that are already created. I can see about 21 such spaces already provided. This information can also be obtained from Customer Care.
