Mongodb on digital ocean

I would like to have MongoDB set up on the droplet. MongoDB stores data to the hard disk. My question is does digital ocean provide a snapshot of the hard disk if somehow droplet is crashed?

Typically it can be files or images, we create on a hard disk which we have uploaded or stored. Do I need to manually back up all those stuff?

If for some reason VPS is crashed, does digital ocean provide a new VPS with the hard disk and applications I have for old one? Or Do I need to reinstall everything again from scratch?

Hey friend!

Great question. You can enable weekly backups on your droplet, as well as take snapshots at any time you desire. It is important to note that without backups or snapshots, your data exists on one RAID array and we do not back it up additionally without your clear consent (which is made in the form of enabling backups or taking a snapshot).

You can use a backup or snapshot to completely re-deploy the disk as it was at that time.
