What sort of minimal images are low end providers using?

I recently purchased a VPS from a lowendspirit provider, I was shocked to see that it only uses 16MB of RAM and has very few processes running. I also noticed a lot of seemingly default utilities were not installed on the server such as the "which" command. I chose to have Centos 7 installed. I've used the minimal image of Centos before, this seems even more minimal than that minimal ISO from the centos website. Does anyone know where I can find the installer for this very minimal Centos version?
