Cloud computing provides scalable and reliable computing services that can be beneficial to software organizations that intend to migrate their existing or new applications to the cloud. However, migration is potentially complex, so cloud computing deployment patterns are proposed to support the migration process. This research compares the format, structure and notations of previous object oriented design patterns with a recent cloud computing design pattern. Firstly, the gaps in cloud computing design patterns catalogue are identified. Secondly, they present a template for creating pattern catalogue for cloud deployment patterns.
