[plug] Deduplication - LessFS, opendedup or zfs

I am thinking of creating my own dedupe server. Currently I am using a
commercial service.

I have been reading a bit about it but one of my concerns is that I will be
copying over a limited bandwidth WAN. I understand that the FS will use less
space but what about less bandwidth in the transfer? Traditionally I use
rsync but since I also want to back up VirtualBox VMs, I do not want to
upload all of them and want the Deduplication to process on the client side
so that only changed blocks are transferred.

Does anyone have experience with this?

Kind Regards
