  • distroless

    🥑 Language focused docker images, minus the operating system.

    Base your images on smaller size images. You can use distribution such as the alpine Linux or Google’s distroless.

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • dive

    A tool for exploring each layer in a docker image

    One last thing before wrapping this guide, I would like to recommend an open-source utility named Dive. Among its many features, you can explore each layer's content, file sizes, and more. Basically, It helps you analyze docker images. Eventually, providing enough info to think of ways to reduce image sizes.
