Just pure speculation on my part, but I would imagine that they have
some sort of backup in place on any VPS setup to restore the servers
in case of failure.  I know they were able to chuck mine to a
different (geographically speaking) data center with nothing more than
a support ticket -- so I'm guessing they have systems in place to
handle the mirrors of VPS images.

But ... I'd rather be cautious, and if the data is that important back
it up separately so in case of an uncontrolled failure you can at
least pick up the pieces elsewhere. :)
