I don't get it.

Do you need a system for sending big files to a recipient or something 
else (such music streaming)?

For just sending larger files I would use an external public service 
(that you can mount by yor own means or one of those you can share with 
zillion users, e.g., Sendspace, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc...) but this 
seems to be confronting with your first point :-?
