Does Digital Ocean use NFS as a file system for its VPSs? (SQLite doesn't work with NFS)

Does anybody here know for sure if Digital Ocean use NFS as a file system for its VPSs? I am asking this because I like to use SQLite for my websites, and SQlite isn’t guaranteed to work correctly on NFS “because fcntl() file locking is broken on many NFS implementations” []

I’ve used SQLite (connecting through PHP’s PDO library) on multiple occasions without any issues. I’m not able to confirm what method of storage they use, though I believe I recall (from a previous post or answer to a feedback thread in their UserVoice community) that storage is local.

Thank you, both, for the answer. It was important.
