Of course, that's what a tar file is... commonly compressed with gzip to make a tar.gz file. However, as well as storing as a file, the tar utility can write to tape drives too. Actually, I can't think of any reason why dd wouldn't work with a tape drive as well so not even intermediate storage is required...
