Format: Paperback
I love the fact that the book has working source code samples that can be ran and tested, it really helps understand what's going on.
I also found useful how the patterns are categorized for easier access.
Most of the patterns are known but explained from a cloud-based focus.
My favourite pattern was the 'Sharding pattern'. It's a must-read if you are an experienced programmer that approaches the cloud, specially if you are going to work with Windows Azure, event though it's not limited to it, but the code samples run on Azure.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a great book - very concise and straight to the point. One can read it beginning to end or use it as a reference and get the details on a particular pattern. It covers a comprehensive set of topics: Caching, Partitioning, Instrumentation, Service Metering and even though it's written with the cloud applications in mind, I found it very useful and applicable for traditional IT applications as well. Highly recommended to IT professionals.

Focused, well structured, a great reference for cloud design patterns, not just for Microsoft's Azure.

I also loved the illustrations, the C# code samples and the summary tables. I could use it as a cloud design patterns cheat sheet.

I really like guidance books, this one is not the exception. This is about architectural and design patterns from a cloud perspective. It iprovides a wide variery of samples (some of them including code) which can easily be implemented. If you plan on designing your application thinking cloud, give this book a try
