Distributed Systems and Recent Innovations: Challenges and Benefits is a good one.

It says -


The main features of a distributed system include [1] [2]:
-- Functional Separation
Based on the functionality/services provided, capability and purpose of each entity in the system.
-- Inherent distribution
Entities such as information, people, and systems are inherently distributed. For example, different information is created and maintained by different people. This information could be generated, stored, analysed and used by different systems or applications which may or may not be aware of the existence of the other entities in the system.
-- Reliability
Long term data preservation and backup (replication) at different locations.
-- Scalability
Addition of more resources to increase performance or availability.
-- Economy
Sharing of resources by many entities to help reduce the cost of ownership.

Dan
