Now if you have servers running RHEL, Ubuntu, Debian, Cent OS and Fedora [...] systemd more and more makes unneeded differences between distributions go away.
In fact the problems are exactly the same, since neither Ubuntu or Debian have systemd and the others are a monoculture. Even if Debian accepts systemd as an alternative it will not be the default. As many people have said before, it would be different if Red Hat (or Fedora) had adopted Upstart which was already available, perhaps improving on it along the way. As it is, you will need two or three sets of init scripts -- the best shot seems to be a single tweaked SysV init script. Which is sad.
