I recently started using Pocket (why had I not used this awesome service before) and discovered a fantastic post on databases under its “Recommended” tab.

Databases are fascinating and complex pieces of software. Ben’s post does an excellent job of explaining database architectures, starting from the pieces that compose the core storage and indexing mechanisms, all the way to horizontally scaling out these systems. Ben does a great job of explaining complex system engineering concepts in a simple fashion, and the beautiful diagrams help a lot.

Highly recommended read for anyone interested in understanding how their favorite database system works!
