What is the difference between creating your own Docker on ubuntu droplet and use Docker from marketplace?

So I created both. It seem like docker droplet from the market place is just ubuntu preinstall with Docker. Am I right?

Hi there @oudamsith,

Yes indeed you are right, it is just a convenient and quick way to deploy a Droplet with Docker CE and Docker Composer preinstalled so that you don’t have to do it manually each time you create a new Droplet.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby

Thank for helping me clarify this. I though the marketplace one has some monitoring tools.
