This diagram represents the classic source control workflow (for example, using SVN).
Benefits of classic source control:
Locking and user permissions on a per-file basis (e.g., you can enforce locking of model files)

Simple and easy to learn
This diagram represents the distributed source control workflow (for example, using Git).
Benefits of distributed source control:
Local repository, which provides full history
Multiple remote repositories, enabling large-scale hierarchical access control
To choose classic or distributed source control, consider these tips.
Classic source control can be helpful if:
You need file locks.
You are new to source control.
Distributed source control can be helpful if:
You need to work offline, commit regularly, and need access to the full repository history.
You need to branch locally.
