All of our newer machines do have battery backed RAID controllers. If you’re creating in one of our newer regions, you should end up on a machine with a battery backed RAID controller. However, as another user has pointed out, we’d always recommend you keep your own backups, and have a great article on some options for that here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-choose-an-effective-backup-strategy-for-your-vps
