800MB via a HTTP PUT?  That seems... over the top.

Personally, I'd look at better upload mechanisms, like a protocol designed for 
transferring files (SFTP, SCP, et al)

I suspect that Richard is correct, it's likely exhausting memory on the server 
because of the whole HTTP request body being kept in RAM.
