Jérôme Petazzoni published a great article on the Ardan labs blog about reducing the size of Docker images. He compares different ways to package a binary into an image by using different base images and either dynamic or static linking. The conclusion is that although you can get really tiny images with SCRATCH, it is probably not worth it because it is more difficult to debug.
