A single page, long, but great read about distributed systems:
In this text I’ve tried to provide a more accessible introduction to
distributed systems. To me, that means two things: introducing the key
concepts that you will need in order to have a good time reading more
serious texts, and providing a narrative that covers things in enough detail
that you get a gist of what’s going on without getting stuck on details.
It’s 2013, you’ve got the Internet, and you can selectively read more about
the topics you find most interesting.
