There is already an alternative to Dropbox, namely OwnCloud.

Is there open source alternative to Google Drive? Specifically for document creation where on could create documents/spreadsheet/presentation and store it on the cloud.

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Can you be more specific about what features of Google Drive you want? What have you looked at already? – John C Jul 11 '13 at 9:17

Try OX App Suite from Open-Xchange. It's very similar to Google Drive, but from what I have read the community version is open source.

More detailed information can be found here in the OX Knowledge Base.

Here's a quick preview of what it looks like on different devices:

Open-Xchange is largely email-based, like a replacement for Microsoft Exchange. How would this act as a replacement for Google Drive? – Andrew Lott Jul 11 '13 at 11:07
@AndrewLott He was looking for something that worked where you had a storage and ability to edit files through the website like google drive and not just store files. this is why i suggested open-exchange: OX Text – Ludjer Jul 12 '13 at 19:52
