The first step you should take is to use the search function on this site, where this has been asked (and answered), many, MANY
times. You can also try Google. You don't say what kind of tape device, nor what you mean by 'backup'. Making a copy is not the same thing...and you don't say if you want incremental backups/full backups, how often you want to take them, what your rotation method is going to be, etc. There are packages such as bacula or zmanada that can do backups too.
Also, you don't say whether you want to do a bare-metal restore, or if you just need files.
