[erlang-questions] Storing images

Suppose I anticipate unknown thousands of records, each containing meta-data associated with an image. Each image averages, say, 100KB. Retrieval is by key and queries on the meta data. Retrieval predominates over insert. Reliability and speed of access are high on the requirements list. 

I'm considering Riak. But...


- Would it be best practice to store the each image in its associated record or would it be better to store the images separately in, say, directories or in a separate distributed file system such as leoFS?

- Is there a better solution altogether?

Many thanks,
