This is a good summary paper on the database internals and major architectural decisions: http://db.cs.berkeley.edu/papers/fntdb07-architecture.pdf

I've been looking for books or articles on Database Architecture and internals for a while now.

I found this paper "Architecture of a Database System" [1] to be an excellent starting point, it's written by database veterans James Hamilton and Micheal Stonebraker and references other much deeper works.

I've always liked Pat Shaughnessy's work, Ruby under a Microscope was a fantastic introduction to MRI 2.0. I really hope to see more works like these.

I like the VLDB papers, and papers of similar conferences. But most of upscaledb's architecture is auto-didactic.

edit: this is a good book: http://db.cs.berkeley.edu/papers/fntdb07-architecture.pdf

I hope my sales improve as soon as I learn to do marketing ;)
