Rationalization of container image sizes for MDM and BAW (IBM Stewardship Center)

We have recently performed an installation of IBM MDM (11.6 FP10) and IBM Stewardship Center on top of BAW ( on a containerized environment (Kubernetes). There are practical challenges in handling images of such huge size (running in to several 10s of GB's.

While I understand that it is WAS software that bloats up these images, we must be cognisant of the challenges around how these images are stored in docker registry and how its difficult to have them managed in a medium sized cluster.
