I think JF has the stack correctly.

And Vijoy is right about PostGRE, with abstraction layer so that it can
be run with MySQL, as I recall.
Mostly PHP, I think the Java and/or C was for multimedia processing
stuff, like FFMPEG.

Yup, they seem to have done everything very thoughtfully. Extremely
impressive. Even moreso as it was the work of one guy (more or less)
right? Diva is a much better DAM system than Drupal, and since they
were talking about open API, there is no reason to think that somewhere
down the line we couldn't devise a Drupal module that relies on Diva (or
similar) for file management.
I think that the Diva server stack is a little too hefty for me to
handle under my desk*Nix/Apache/Tomcat/C/SQL, no? but if we could have a
central server running Diva that we could tap into from our various AFS
mysql/php projects, that would be pretty keen.
