Multiple Docker Containers

Hello Guys,

im running multiple R-Shiny applications. I already made docker container for each shiny-app, but every container needs like 1.5GB. Because every “shiny-app”-container has a R instance, shiny-server, some unix packages and R-libraries.

my question is:
is it possible to create one “big” container as a “Shiny-Server” (with all libraries and dependencies) and every shiny-app as a “small” container (only with the needed R-files). The small containers should use the big container as a server with the needed libraries.

sorry for my broken english .
