7.Backup and version control are like apples and oranges It is important to note that a version control system is not a replacement for backups, and that backups are even less of a replacement for version control. They are two different tools that work best when used together and ensure that the relevant data is always available when needed. On their own, neither centralised backups nor version control can ensure 100% security for consistent data. The only way to find out whether the centrally stored projects actually match the productive programs (offline-online-status) is through the regular (automated) comparison of software versions. This way you can track changes and analyse them accordingly. On the other hand, there is no point in automatically creating a version of backup data. At the end of the day, not all backups are the same. For fast disaster recovery, you will need a restorable backup of the most recent version. This means that symbols and comments must also be uploaded. You should therefore consider the type and quality of data backups carried out by an automated data management system so that you always have a restorable backup to maximise plant and data availability. 7
