The Canonical Cloud Architecture | High Scalability
This is a very nice and useful architecture with some "patterns" for cloud architectures - although I believe a lot of these patterns can be applied to any system of large enough size. I am particularly a fan of queuing as a great option for tying together loosely coupled system components in a way that can scale and perform. If you can handle delays in your system and don't need a lot of synchronized workflows, it is one architecture I personally would look at very seriously.
