I haven't used it (or even considered using it) but I remember seeing
such a product mentioned. It was proprietary, closed source, non-free
software, but it was a niche leader and I don't think that the niche
consider software freedom as a priority.

The niche was providing version control for groups of creative artists
working with large binary media in a collaborative environment.

The product was called AlienBrain.

That's all I know ;-)
