Network administrators have to manually store switch configurations into text files and store old switch configurations in an archive. These administrators don’t know when someone changes something on their switches unless they manually check the configuration to see if a change has occurred.

The solution automatically writes switch configurations to an online archive. This automates a manual task that doesn’t happen each time a configuration changes. It also notifies administrators when a change occurs on one of their devices, allowing them to accept or reject these changes. In addition, they can restore previous configurations if they so choose.

This solution provides reliable automatic backups, versioning, the ability to revert unwanted changes to a known good state, and knowledge of the changes that happen in our environment along with when they happen.
