I work for a large retailer in the US. We are currently going through a certification process with VISA. Part of the compliance demands are that we track all router and switch configuration changes, noting what changes were made and who made them. We had a vendor come in and demo a very complicated system that did the job, but was priced at around $80,000. Even in the middle of a $1M+ project, that's a lot of money. When one of the network administrators told me what the price tag was, I immediately pointed him at Subversion. A few days later of testing and developing methodology, we now have the router configs for our 300+ stores as well as our corporate routers safely stored and tracked in Subversion. Our network administrators use TortoiseSVN for all of the commits, and those with access can view the history using WebSVN, and all this cost us one 1U server, which was reclaimed from a decommissioned server cluster. It has been fast, stable and easy to use. Here's a big thank you to the entire Subversion team, especially the ones who tireless answer questions on IRC. You have built an amazing system that I recommend every chance I get.
