Backups in DO are free only for now (until June 1st). Price will be 20% of what you pay for your VPS. Plus - snapshots will be 0.02$ per GB. Plus DO bacukps does not happen every day and they are put on randomizer (based on load of backup system). For me every 3rd day is skipped.

wow ... thats good to know. I thought they'd be free forever.

Do you work for digital ocean? how did you get this info?

No, I dont work for DO. I'm just using their VPS to do some testing and to compare it to Linode (I use both). Source: https://www.digitalocean.com/blog_posts/snapshot-and-backup-...
