Looking for textbook that deals with design of database servers

P: n/a
Database design is well covered in undergrad CS. But does anyone know of
a textbook that deals with the design of database servers (and probably
touches
on databases themselves), and perhaps deals with interpreting SQL inquiries?

The motivation for this is that I wish to write a database server for a
proprietary
operating system (it resembles POSIX, but is not completely compliant)
for an embedded processor system that exchanges queries from clients also
employing embedded processors. Stored data is all in one place.
I'm a little familiar with the MySQL source code, but I don't
wish to replicate something that complex. The sort of investment
I'm talking about should involve no more than three man, er, person-months
by an experienced C++ programmer with plenty of experience in systems
and database programming for both Microsoft and Linux platforms.

I can't give you the links, but there are several books listed on the
developers side of www.postgresql.org You'll have to fish around there.
Heck, since it's BSD, maybe you can adapt the source code to run on your os
;-)
