Instant Recovery reduces downtime and ensures the availability of all necessary and correct programs and data. In the event of an emergency, octoplant ensures that production systems can be reset to a previously functional version very quickly.
The recovery can be pattern-based or individual. This saves time because every hour of downtime costs companies a lot of money. Creating a version, i.e. the consistent logging of changes, makes an important contribution to troubleshooting and documentation. For fast disaster recovery, it is also important to be able to restore not only the last program, but also earlier system statuses, if necessary. For example, you can easily restore the last program that was running smoothly before the malfunction.
85 percent of the customers agree with the statement that they save time thanks to versiondog.

Easily organize program backups to immediately see what the newest and correct version is.
Restore the asset to the version you need from the list of available backups.
When all devices are connected in octoplant, a backup is automatically created (according to your specifications). This means that in the event of a shutdown, you are always able to restore the correct backup to resume production at the push of a button. octoplant provides all the information you need to determine which version is correct.
It takes just a few easy steps to restore an automatically created backup or the project from a checked-in version and reload it to the device.
The octoplant system does not write directly to devices, so it cannot normally restore a backup to a device by itself. But you can use its scripting function to connect to an existing solution, in which case the octoplant system would serve as the data supplier. This, however, is a special solution that should be discussed with AUVESY-MDT.
octoplant provides the information/data needed for instant recovery in one central location, which cuts down on time-consuming searching and long downtimes.
Yes. Not only can two versions be compared: multiple versions and projects can be compared with each other.
Not every automation project is suitable for backing up. It may be a good idea to tag backupable versions or mark them as such, depending on runtime parameters, specific configurations and when a backup was created. This ensures that a backup meets every qualitative expectation.
Steel production in Europe can hardly be made economically viable unless manufacturing facilities use the very latest equipment and technology. So it is clear that the number of stoppages has to be kept to an absolute minimum, and, when unavoidable, must be as short as possible. At Tata Steel, the software solution from AUVESY-MDT has become an effective means of combating downtime and increasing production costs.
STIHL significantly improves plant reliability with versiondog. In large, heavily-specialised production facilities, such as those belonging to STIHL, it is vital that both management and maintenance are able to keep track of all aspects of their production. Thanks to versiondog, time-consuming searches for data and documentation have long since become a thing of the past.
