Also, take a look at Skyvia. It requires no coding and has an intuitive drag and drop interface.

Through the salesforce service (Apex or others) we cannot directly communicate with an FTP server (either upload or download).
Best bet would be to use an external application like jitterbit.

You can use below FTP API to integrate FTP server with Salesforce.

We have implemented a REST API which allow to directly communicate with an FTP server. This FTP API is designed for people who need to perform actions like DOWNLOAD, UPLOAD, DELETE and TRANSFER on the FTP server using REST API’s.

FTP API: https://ftp-api.herokuapp.com/

Please let me know if you need any other information.

I am looking for the similar use case where 3rd party system wants to integrate with Salesforce through FTP i.e that system will share the quote informaiton in a file whenever a quote is generated at their end. We would need to consume those quote into Salesforce as and when a new file is placed there
