Is it safe to write in the filesystem in SCP?

We are developing a sales portal in SCP, some technologies that we are using are: Spring framework, Quartz Scheduler, Hana DB, SAP UI5, SAP HCI.

My requirement is to load large volume of data (customer master, product catalog). An external system is going to send us a zip file that contains the data, so we need to unzip the file, process it, save it and finally delete it.

I made a test writing the zip file into the filesystem in SCP and everything is ok, but I have some questions about the filesystem:

- Is it a good practice to write into it?

- Is it secure to write there?

- How much space is there?. Is the free space going to change in the future?

- Is the write permission going to change in the future?
