Thank you!

It can be a good solution for my metal servers.

But, I also need a linux os that I can found on global vps's.

>From what I can see, there is Ubuntu, Debian, CentOs, OpenSUSE.

What will be the most lightweight for me?

at Dyne.org we develop and use http://Devuan.org on our servers

Devuan is very lightweight compared to all other distributions because it doesn't adopts the systemd stack. You can also run it without dbus. Still, in Devuan there are all packages found in Debian, so installing and running Icecast2 is very straightforward. Also compiling it from source with patches you may need.
Old /etc/init.d sysvlinux scripts to start stop work as usual.

a minimal image of Devuan for console use (server etc.) can run in approx 64MB or RAM. To try it out quick you can also use Vagrant or the "minimal live iso": http://kalos.mine.nu (soon to be official)
