With the introduction of cloud computing and Web 2.0, many applications are moving to the cloud environment. Version control systems have also taken a first step towards this direction. Nevertheless, existing systems are either client-server oriented or completely distributed, and they don’t match exactly the nature of the cloud. In this paper we propose a new cloud version control system focusing on the requirements imposed by cloud computing, that we identified as: concurrent editing, history rewrite, accountability, scalability, security, and fault tolerance. Our plan is to tackle these issues in a systematic way, and we present in this paper an overview of the solutions organized in three separate layers: access API, logical structure, and physical storage.
