I haven't seen any books which focus on algorithms behind "commercial popular databases". Many database books have good coverage of things like b-trees, and other indexing methods; e.g., the following book covers basic indexing:

The following book focuses on performance in different commercial DBMSes, and you may find it relevant:

Database algorithmics is often synonymous with "external memory" algorithmics; and for that subject, I suggest that you have a look at these URLs:
