Riak TS can be installed on Debian or Ubuntu-based systems using a binary package available here.
Debian is only supported for developing with Riak TS and NOT for general operations.
Debian and Ubuntu give you a very small limit on open file handles. Even with a backend that uses very few file handles, it’s possible to run out. See Open Files Limit for more information about changing the limit.
