On the technical side and as for all eXo applications, eXo KS is leveraging eXo Portal and stores its data inside eXo JCR a JSR 170 compliant Java Content Repository. Of course those two appllications can be deployed with the other eXo products as part as a full feature Portal or WebOS environment.
