Install Minimal Container Templates on Proxmox Server

container management

Linux containers essentially break the two pieces of an operating system up even further. It allows the two pieces to be managed independently, the container host and the container image. The container host comprises an operating system kernel and small userspace with a minimal set of libraries and daemons necessary to run containers. The container image comprises the libraries, interpreters, configuration files of an operating system userspace, and the developer’s application code. Below are the steps to install a minimal container template on a Proxmox Server
