I tried both native dump/scp copying and amanda. Amanda worked very well and it's very easy to install and setup.

Not sure about rsync, but I always had performance problems with very large files... seems that the software doesn't scale very well.

Of course I'm talking about two/three years ago, maybe things have changed nowadays.
