Minimal Ubuntu for docker and clouds.

Minimal Ubuntu, on public clouds and Docker Hub

30 MB base image and
   optimised kernels on public clouds. Made for machines and containers.

Using Minimal Images from Dockerhub

On Dockerhub, the new Ubuntu 18.04 LTS image is now the new Minimal Ubuntu 18.04 image. Launching a Docker  instance with docker run ubuntu:18.04  therefore launches a Docker instance with the latest Minimal Ubuntu.

Minimal Ubuntu images are available on AWS and Google Cloud.

On AWS, see the listing of minimal images at US-WEST 2 minimal images

and on Google Cloud use the SDK CLI with:

 gcloud compute images list --project ubuntu-os-cloud | grep ubuntu-minimal
