The site http://quarknet.i2u2.org
was developed by Xeno Media
, the Chicago-based company that works closely with Fermilab to develop the lab's web-based content.
The site was originally created in Drupal Commons 2.x-6.x and hosted from the i2u2 servers at the MCS division of Argonne. Since creation, it has been maintained by Xeno Media.
In Q1 2016, QuarkNet moved data operations from Argonne to Notre Dame's Center for Research Computing (CRC). We created a VM i2u2-quarknet
there to host the site, but a PHP conflict
followed by the end-of-life of Drupal 6 prevented us from hosting the site from CRC servers.
Xeno Media transferred the site from Argonne to Rackspace and then to Pantheon for hosting. Ultimately, however, we would like to move it to the i2u2-quarknet
VM at the CRC along with the rest of our online resources. This will require a major upgrade or even redevelopment of the site.
We held a meeting on 21 October 2016 to gather input from teachers, fellows, and staff on the use of the site
