Droplet with pre-installed Docker

Currently Docker is going to take around 120-150 seconds to install after the Droplet is provision.
Also, the default image officially supported by Docker is Ubuntu. So Ubuntu 14.04 image could just work in this case.

The only thing to be aware of is that we need to delete /etc/docker/key.json via the cloud-init script to ensure that each machine gets a unique Docker key.

    We already offer an image with Docker pre-installed. When creating a new droplet click on the "Applications" tab and you can select the "Docker 1.6.0 on 14.04" to launch an Ubuntu droplet with Docker.

    Hi Ryan,

    I am wondering that it's possible to provision this via the API?
    We're preparing machines via Docker Machine.
