Collaborative visualization has been designed to allow researchers work together on various platforms whether in centralized, replicated, hybrid, and disconnected system architecture. This will make it possible for a group of people to work on the same task simultaneously by providing synchronized views and controlled accesses to a common data. Despite its advantages, it has brought reliability problem where we only need to store the important data in multiple sites. Therefore, concurrency control is required to maintain data consistency of its environment state that is shared in different databases in order to solve the reliability problem. Concurrency control has two techniques which are non-optimistic and optimistic. In general, both techniques in concurrency control should ensure consistency of the databases and correct completion of each transaction initiated in the system. Furthermore, concurrency control resolve data access conflicts in a manner that induces a serialization order among the conflicting transactions. In the end, evaluation and discussion of the existing software applications in collaborative 3D protein structure visualization will be elaborated.
