Best distro for Linux containers


Hi, I'm looking for a light, stable, secure, reliable, and without systemd Linux distro for the containers. I'm going to run services like Nginx, PostgreSQL, ejabberd, ZNC inside the Linux containers. Is Alpine Linux a good choice?

[almost] Any distro is ok for running containers.

I agree. First, select a distro that very conveniently supports all of the services that you need. Then, "introduce containers to provide isolation."

All processes that "run inside a container" are in fact always running directly on the host, "while wearing rose-colored glasses." You have plenty of good options regarding the exact way that you want to set it all up – lxc/lxd, DockerŪ, and so on.
