The backend of the system should contain 2 main parts:
1) Distributed files system that will store the actual images. For example Hadoop, Google's file system (proprietary), S3 e.t.c
2) Non-sql searchable store. Key are the tags. Value is path for image. For example Elastic or Solr.

Uploading is practically adding to Elastic a json, having tags in indexable field and Hadoop's path in other field

Searching is getting path from Elastic given search tags.
