Everything you need to know about hard links is in the documentation: http://gluster.org/community/documentation/index.php/Arch/Glusterfs_Hard_Links

But I think the solution mostly depends on your workload.. What will be backed up? Small or large files? Rotations for the backups? What access do the backup clients have to the backup target? What is the tech on the client? SAN? Local disks?
