I'm running BackupPC on a ProxMox virtual machine.
The VM's disk storage is on a Qnap NAS share (mount via NFS).

I want to realize a remote backup on cloud (I'm considering Amazon Glacier) to disaster recovery purpose.

I'm evaluating the pros and cons between backing up:
1) original data
2) BackupPC VM's disk file (so the BackupPC pool)

First option:
- cons: greater amount of data
- pro: better data segmentation (with Archives/Vaults)

Second option
- pro: lower amount of data
- cons: have to restore the entire archive (the VM file)

Are there any other factors related to BackupPC features that can influence the choice (for example something related to hardlinks/deduplication)?

Thanks for your answers!
