I'm considering running a database on DigitalOcean, but I've never used SSDs before and I'm concerned about reliability, so two quick questions:
1. You've said elsewhere that the SSDs have a RAID setup - is this RAID 10 or another configuration?
2. What's the model of the SSDs? I'm interested in looking up any information I can find on their failure rates/modes, as well as whether they include a capacitor or other battery-backup system, to ensure that recently-written data is protected in the event of a power loss.
