You can backup a Cassandra node by running the snapshot command:
$ nodetool snapshot
When you take a snapshot of a table, the backup is created in the snapshots subdirectory of the table. For example:
/path/ to/ data/ keyspace_name/ table_name-UUID/ snapshots/ snapshot_name/
Note that in Cassandra a snapshot is equivalent to a cold backup since SSTables are immutable (they don't change once written to disk).
