That's CVS.

It can be reasonably used on anything that stores files as plain text
documents. So the answer depends on your office environment. If you're
using one of the XML-based office systems, you can use it with some
success. If you're still using a system that stores data in binary
files, it'll work - but isn't nearly as useful.

I've had very good experiences using Perforce - which I perfer to CVS
- to store system configuration files.
