There are other details in your post that I might comment on, but I
will focus on the main point.

What you describe here simply will not work.  Single documents in Riak
at that size are going to cause problems.  There is an interface atop
Riak ("Luwak") which can handle such things just fine, if large file
storage is your main use case.
