Thanks also for the input on SQL Server. We do want to scale fairly big, but maybe not huge - I predict data store will be 10TB in 18 months. I guess that will be about 20 or 30 servers, which does in fact sound could be expensive. I definitely need to keep this in mind.

Thank you for your comment @Craig. Good to know the stacks are equivalent. I was under the impression that it was harder to mix and match than it seems it is.

Thank you for the comment Eric. I might have been misguided by some other startups, thinking that the OSS / Linux stack was stronger. I have led .Net teams myself but did not want the company to run on that just because I knew it. Great to know it has added productivity compared to java.

Thanks for the comments, it's not hw, it's software. The company was had some help in the past to develop a minimal product, but I am the first full time engineer, and will build the team. I'm the company's third hire.
