Divi Monk and Divi Cloud do some things similar but there is a huge difference between the 2. First, the cost is about the same, Divi Cloud is a whole $1 more. Also, they both provide a library of templates that you can use as a starting point for your website design. I do find that the Divi Cloud templates are a much higher quality then the Divi Monk templates, and they have committed to adding more each month. Now that is where the similarities end. The main point of difference is that Divi Cloud is also your own personal layout cloud where you can store your own layouts and have instant 1 click access to them. So because of the higher quality templates and your own personal cloud storage, Divi Cloud crushes Divi Monk in this comparison.

Layouts Cloud Things To Consider
The best thing about the cloud is also the worst thing about the cloud. Its all on someone else's server that you don't have control over. The good news is that most cloud services are handled by Amazon or Google, so there should be no issues.
Also, the $100 plan ideally would include more storage than 1 gig, but realistically these templates don't take up that much space.
Divi Monk Things To Consider
Initially, when you see that there are 200+ templates, it may get tempting, but when you actually look at the templates, reality sets in. Most of them are not well suited for an entire website and there is a ton of duplication. So instead of 1 contact page as 1 of those 200 templates, you get that 1 contact page in 10 different colors which are 10 templates.
Divi Monk seems to value quantity over quality.
Also, the templates seem to be basic to me, not something that you would actually find useful in the real world.

Layouts Cloud Review Summary
Divi Cloud is really unique in that they give you a wide variety of high-quality Divi templates, but they also let you store your own in the cloud. This makes it super easy to build new websites and stay organized.
Their service is perfect for Divi developers.
Divi Monk Review Summary
At the end of the day, I really don't see the difference between Divi Monk and the free templates resources being provided on the Divi blog. If you visit the Elegant Themes blog, there are many high-quality templates available for free.
There are also much higher quality templates being offered for free in the various Divi Facebook groups.
If you want something paid, again, the complete site layouts from the Divi community are much higher quality.
