The better option for ZFS would be to get a SSD and move the dedupe table onto that drive instead of having it in RAM, because it can become massive.

Thank you,

Deduplication with ZFS takes a lot of RAM.

I would not yet trust any of the linux zfs projects for data that I
wanted to keep long term.
