The growing need of Information Technology in every field has lead to the evolution of cloud computing for highly efficient usage of IT resources. Cloud provides services through internet. The computing power to the cloud environment is provided through collection of data centers or Cloud Data Storages (CDSs) present at different location and connected by high speed networks. With the emergence of cloud computing the CDSs is also emerging. CDSs are an emerging technology and facing an important issue that is security. The integrity of data centers or CDSs is an extremely important issue. The authors' paper discusses the model based on MAS architecture of cloud and data encoding mechanism to enhance the integrity of Data centers or CDSs.
