Is it Digital Ocean's responsibility to make sure that all Disk's and Storage are maintained and have redundancy?

I have a Droplet with CentOS installed and WHM running as a web server. My question can be reduced to: “Can I rely on Digital Ocean to look after and maintain the hardware being used?”

If a disk gets old and breaks, how would Digital Ocean respond? Does Digital Ocean keep redundant drives to fall back on to in this case?

Really appreciate any help on the topic, thanks :)
