Systemd for Embedded Linux - Challenges and Opportunities - Michael Olbrich, Pengutronix

System V init or similar home grown solutions are still used for the majority of the embedded Linux systems. Systemd is seen as 'too large' or only useful for server and desktop systems.
In this presentation, Michael Olbrich will show that systemd certainly has a place in an embedded Linux system. How it can be used to replace home grown solutions to typical problems in embedded systems and improve the reliability of the system as a whole. Why leaving the well known environment and taking the effort to learn about a quite different init system is well worth the effort. However, it should not be forgotten that systemd is a complex piece of software with a long list of requirements. So this presentation will also take a look at what's necessary to successfully integrate systemd into an embedded Linux system.
