This computing which runs on a web browser. It provides access to a number of web applications through internet without booting the whole OS. The purpose behind Cloud Operating System is that the full system is running on the Web browser and lives on it. Cloud OS is thought of as a new era of an Operating System in which everything inside an Operating System can be accessed from everywhere inside a specific network. The user just need to login onto the web browser and thus can have access to his personalized web-tops where all the applications and data is stored.

In this paper it will discuss what is the difference between the Cloud OS and a simple Operating System and how the Cloud OS is developed defining all the requirements and functionalities of a cloud OS. We will also discuss in detail about the load balancing, Geo-replication Data Storage and Virtualization in Cloud OS.
