A Major Music Company Now Backs Systemd In Debian
Yesterday on Phoronix I mentioned Debian looked to be leaning in favor of using systemd over Upstart for its default init system given the latest comments by the technical committee members. The latest support for systemd in Debian comes from a streaming music company that's a major user of Debian GNU/Linux.
Spotify, the commercial music streaming service, runs Debian on their servers. Spotify has more than 5,000 physical serivers and over 1,000 virtual machines and they're all running Debian GNU/Linux. This big Debian shop has now voiced their opinion after yesterday's Phoronix article. Noa Resare on the behalf of Spotify wrote in the bug report:
Spotify, an online streaming music service, is a significant user of Debian GNU/Linux. We have some 5000 physical servers and well over a thousand virtual servers using both public and private clouds running Debian GNU/Linux serving millions of songs to our users every day.
