Hosting a game server in Docker


I’m thinking about hosting a 7 Days to Die game server in Docker (FROM ubuntu). Of course, I’d keep the save game data in a volume. However, the 7 Days to Die dedicated server can be around 16 GB once it’s done.

I know the idea is normally to keep Docker images as small as possible, so 16 GB would be abnormal.

Am I going about this the wrong way? What’s the alternative?
