Amanda uses dump, not tar, though I think it can be configured to use
GNU tar...GNU tar in particular because of its incremental backup
I've run Amanda in a very large installation (many hundreds of
machines being backed up to a single 4GB DAT) with excellent results.
In those days, though, a 4GB disk was considered pretty big, so the
requirement for a holding disk wasn't that much of a big deal.
