Maybe using split is better. "split" is part of debian's textutils package.
It would look like:

 vos dump root.cell | split -b1024m - my_backup.

That line would redirect stdout of vos to split and write
as much 1024MByte-chunks as necessary.

For restoring you could use

 cat my_backup.* | vos restore
