Yes, i use afbackup for backup of 4 linux-servers to a single DDS3
Tape for some years now. 
What i like most about afbackup is the minimal interaction that is

 - Define a Tape-Set of 10 tapes
 - afbackup starts with tape 1 
 - when tape 1 is full it is ejected, and a mail is send "please
   insert tape 2" and so on.
 - after Tape 10 it Returns to Tape 1
