Besides figuring out SSD caching and other features for Ubuntu Server 14.10, developers at Canonical and other stakeholders are figuring out Ubuntu Server's future with systemd in the long-term.

The complete migration to systemd on the desktop and server isn't happening for Ubuntu 14.10, but it's expected systemd will replace Upstart by Ubuntu 16.04 LTS -- April 2016. While the default init manager switch isn't happening for a few releases, Ubuntu 14.10 can already boot systemd using experimental packages, but a lot of porting needs to be done for migrating over to systemd units, integrating systemd with the rest of the Ubuntu stack, etc. Through this process, Ubuntu intends to work with Debian (and utilize their work as well) given that they too are switching over to systemd as their default init system.

For those wishing to learn more about the ongoing Ubuntu systemd work, there's the session information from Wednesday and the Launchpad Blueprint.
