I’m thinking of getting one server for running a few small websites and I wanted to know if the storage is permanent or not. I.e. if the instance crashes will it retain everything on the disk or will it be lost to the ether? Is running a database on an instance something you can do without worrying too much (e.g. just with daily backups or something)?
