As we recently noticed that duplicity doesn't scale well enough, maybe
bup might be worth a try?
Obviously it lacks the main advantage of duplicity: Since no encryption
is involved, everyone with sufficient access on the backup server can
read everything on all backed-up hosts. Depending on who operates the
backup server, this might matter much for SL.
