If I had freedom of choice and problem notwithstanding:

Webmachine or Cowboy for the web server. Proper RESTful approaches are too
good to leave up.

Postgresql for smaller databases (up to 5-10 terabytes in size roughly).
After that, it depends on the CAP theorem and if you lean CP or AP. For the
latter, Riak.

Never pick a "framework", since they always limit you in the long run. If I
*had* to, I would research nitrogen or n2o.

Transit for data interchange, naturally (

acme(1) or sam(1) as the editor (

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_%28text_editor%29) YMMV a bit here :)

FreeBSD on the server, preferably. If not, Illumos/SmartOS. Then OpenBSD,
then Linux. Windows is not for serious work, but a toy for computer gaming.
