Should we use mysqldump or mysqlpump?

We export an entire database, gz compress the files, transfer to another network, and reload the DB. Currently we use mysqldump and the export took about 2 hours. I noticed that mysqlpump does essentially the similar thing and wonder what are the differences of the two utilities. Should we use mysqlpump instead since it allows multi-thread? Is mysqlpump similar to the Oracle data pump where the dump files are generated on the DB server rather than on the client computer where the utility program, such as mysqldump, is running?

We may not have the UNIX login to access the source DB's server so if mysqlpump generates the files on the server, then we can't use it.

Any suggestions?
