Microsoft is proud to be working with KimsQ, a PHP-based web platform provider that has just become the second largest web provider in South Korea after adding Windows to their existing PHP on Linux solutions. 
 
KimsQ currently powers 10,000 websites in South Korea. That number is expected to increase later this month, when they launch a .NET version – the first open source .NET content management system (CMS) deployment in Korea.  We’re also now working with KimsQ to develop a version of their software that will run on Windows Azure.
 
In recognition of their innovation, KimsQ was recently visited by Korea’s President Lee Myung-Bak and awarded $100,000 in local government funding to support their continued growth. We look forward to our next steps in this collaboration as we work together to provide customers with increased flexibility.
