octoplant data management software

April 19, 2022

Auvesy-MDT introduced octoplant, the next level of development of the versiondog and AutoSave solution. octoplant is a new data management platform that provides a vendor-independent and comprehensive view of all automation backup processes involving OT and IT. Users are protected against production downtime, data loss and also experience increased cybersecurity. octoplant provides maximum protection against production downtime. Consisting of eight function sets, octoplant is tailored to different industrial needs and uses dashboards to display the various statuses of the plant clearly and precisely.

With this software, production managers know where programs and configurations are stored and how up to date they are at the touch of a button. In regard to production data, they are able to take quick and decisive action in the event of system failure or when production comes to a standstill by restarting production and restoring the previous settings. This is not only possible when the shutdown is due to common equipment malfunctions, but also if the plant is the victim of a cyber-attack.

octoplant displays the current and correct status of all machine programming as well as the version history of all changes with detailed visibility into program differences through tabular and graphical reports. This makes it easy to see which changes were made, when and why. With automatic program backups, a previous version can be restored in just a few clicks, saving time, and avoiding product errors. Automatic backups can apply to a single device or the entire plant, even if it consists of several hundred or even several thousand devices and sensors, and hardware and software components.
