ArcPy vs ArcGIS Python API for uploading data to local ArcGIS Server?

I am tasked with integrating information from a different data collection system into a client's existing ArcGIS Server (local server running version 10.2). Eventually, I will rewrite the data collection system to directly use the ArcGIS Server as a backend, but for now I am writing a Python script that will run every night and sync the data to the ArcGIS Server.


I'm a bit stuck on the difference between using ArcPy or the ArcGIS Python API tool available from Esri. Which one is better suited for my task at hand?
