Perhaps instead of point in time full backups, you could continuously back
up with something like tablesnap [1]? tablesnap watches the datadir for
newly created SSTables and then writes the file and a manifest containing
which other files were also in the directory at the time. These two pieces
of information allow you to restore to the point in time when any given
(immutable) data file was created.
