That said, there are plenty of resources that have been helpful to me:

I've found this book to be quite solid so far: http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920032175.do

I'm about a quarter to half of the way through and it's been interesting and quite thorough even though it's still a "beta" book. The content is a little high level so some familiarity with distributed systems principles is useful but the text is very approachable and easy to understand (so far).

I got it after seeing several recommendations in other HN threads so I'm not the only person that has found it useful.

Yes, it's only available as a preview at http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920032175.do but it's almost complete.

Check out "Designing Data-Intensive Applications" by Martin Kleppmann - http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920032175.do. It's still work-in-progress, but covers a big chunk of distributed systems material, is up to date and has good reviews. You can read the 10 out of 12 chapters via Safari Books Online.

The downside is that I pre-ordered the book in November, expecting it in April and it now shows November of this year as the release date on Amazon. I'd be surprised to get it this year at all. Haven't found other books of similar scope and recency though, so I guess I'll wait some more.

I'm looking forward to the publication of Martin Kleppmann's book Designing Data-Intensive Applications.

The author of this paper, Martin Kleppmann, is writing a book "Designing Data-Intensive Applications" (http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920032175.do?cmp=af-stra...). I've been reading it via the O'Reilly immediate access and I think that it's the book you are looking for.

It's not even published yet, but based on the 7 of 11 chapters available I can say the book gonna be really fundamental.

Designing Data-Intensive Applications

The Big Ideas Behind Reliable, Scalable, and Maintainable Systems

By Martin Kleppmann

The author has great sense of humor.

The Architecture of Open Source applications [0]. I suggest also to check, but they are more specific, Enterprise Integration Patterns [1]. Building Big Data systems, Data Intensive applications [2], [3]. The best way to learn is practice - open source project or lending an appropriate job.

"Designing Data-Intensive Applications" is shaping up to be an excellent treatement of modern databases and their underpinnings. It's at an excellent level of abstraction, deep enough to convey database internals while high level enough (so far at least) to be able to cover a wide variety of database systems. It also has its feet firmly planted in database history, and is NoSQL-koolaid free. Highly recommended.
