Alpine Linux

What do you like best?
While using alpine Linux in the dockerfile the image that was built was of very lightweight due to it taking very less storage & it became very easily portable. We were using alpine Linux in almost all. the dockerfiles.
What do you dislike?
While using alpine Linux in dockerfile some of the packages were missing while we were working with nodejs application & sometimes we faced issues while using sudo inside the container.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
before we used to use the ubuntu in the from of dockerfile , due to which the image size used to be more & then we switched to alpine Linux & image size got reduced to a very greater extent. We started building small size images.

Small and powerful Linux distro that does exactly what's required to do.

What do you like best?
It's lightweight. When dockerizing your applications, the image size can easily go over 1GB with most of the space being used by the base layer, but not with Alpine.
Alpine is lightweight since it does not come already equipped with a lot of default Linux packages.
What do you dislike?
There's not much to dislike about Alpine. If it were possible to have a desktop environment it would a good thing, but this is where Alpine Linux misses.
Community support is very limited and troubleshooting is a pain sometimes.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I am using Alpine Linux as the base layer for all my Python microservices and data science-related apps and services. It's easy to set up and helps in getting started quickly.

Works fine

Works as expected. Had some issues to ssh into the VM at the beginning.
What I missed was that the user is 'ec2-user'.
Setup a separate security group for ssh on my IP and it worked like charme.
