Is it possible for Salesforce Marketing Cloud to send a data extract (from a data extension) from SFMC Safehouse location at the business unit's sFTP to a completely different sFTP site located on another company system/server? Thanks

Yes, it's possible to setup external SFTP locations. Just go to:

Email Studio > Admin > Data Management > File Locations

Here's the official documentation on the subject and a screen how it looks like in the interface:

In your Automation you'll need to do the Data Extract and then use a File Transfer activity to transfer your file your new external file location.

  • Perfect! Thank you!
