Abstract: Cloud collaboration is an important technique which helps distant users to share their work, information and files over the cloud at the same instant of time. The focus of this study is to remove the problem of the deadlock or long time waiting zone condition for requests edit threads, by the users in collaborative structure. The 'co-authoring' or 'co-editing' process generates a major problem in the form of writing confliction in concurrent and single user editor system in cloud collaboration process, hence multi-version approach is implementing as a solution to ensure no confliction in cloud collaboration environment. In this study cloud collaboration architecture is discussing which describes the efficient working of central cloud, remote cloud and local cloud in collaborating environment. The involvement of central cloud helps to minimise the storage space of data in the cloud environment with reduced redundancy factor.
Keywords: single user editor system; co-authoring; co-editing; multi-version; cloud collaboration; quality of service; user domain; cloud domain; central cloud.
