We backup to a ZFS based appliance, and we allow ZFS to do compression and disable compression in BackupPC. We do not allow ZFS to de-duplicate. However since you’re looking at doing ZFS on the same box that’s running BackupPC it probably doesn’t matter which one you have compression turned on since it’s the same processors., just don’t do both.
