Cloud Application Architectures: Building Applications and Infrastructure in the cloud by George Reese

A book aimed at systems administrators outlining the cost benefits of moving to a cloud architecture, and covering issues such as firewalls, back ups and disaster recovery as well as strategies for scaling. It provides a brief introduction to EC2 and S3, with an appendix documenting the various command line utilities for dealing with the EC2 system. A good read for getting a general feel for this new way to deploy your applications, but without a lot of technical depth.
