systemd is a service and process manager for Linux, also used as init deamon. It introduces a service and dependency description scheme, but also supports SysV and LSB init scripts to some extend. It parallelizes activation, and socket / filesystem / D-Bus event handling. It provides complex process status tracking and control frontends, a distinct logging facility, requires custom network and mount configuration.
