Data backup protects automated production and ensures that the correct version is always running. With version management, plant operators always have access to the current program and can see all changes. Different versions can be compared graphically and in tabular form. Backups are created automatically - saving time, reducing errors, and ensuring a reliable image of the production environment.
This not only works for newly built or retrofitted digital plants but can also be implemented for unnetworked or partially networked machinery and plants. Daily manual backups of project statuses can be replaced by automated backups. Users save time for value-added tasks and receive uniform workflows across all shifts. At the same time, due to transparent monitoring functions, everyone involved gains important insights into the status of the plant and the production. If something doesn't match, the necessary people will be informed about it via email triggers.
Users of versiondog (former product from AUVESY) most frequently use the versioning, comparing (Smart Compare) and executing jobs (Backup) functions.*

When using octoplant, all devices are backed up according to your criteria (time, interval, etc.) so a new version of the job configuration is created within a few minutes. When differences between two versions are detected, users can be notified automatically with visual comparison of the differences.
You can set up a job quickly and easily using drag-and-drop, provided all of the information (IP, credentials) about the device is available.
Our Easy Asset Integrator allows you to create a large number of components and set up jobs to go with them. Following a final check, these become active.
A comparison between two versions can be displayed graphically in octoplant:
A history of comparison results is created in the backups and historical data can be retrieved that way.
You can configure octoplant to notify any user or group of results by email once jobs have been executed
