Salt Lake City, UT, December 27, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Internet connections with Go Au Pair just got a lot faster, and their system is running more smoothly than ever. Go Au Pair recently teamed with 8X8, a leading provider of cloud communications and computing solutions, to bring better service to Host Families and their Au Pairs. This transition included software and hardware upgrades, which improve Go Au Pair’s bandwidth and network infrastructure.
“We are always looking for ways to help Host Families quickly find their Au Pairs and process the information,” Devon Kapler, Executive Director of Go Au Pair. “This upgrade delivers better performance, fewer errors and less unplanned downtime.”
8X8 is based in Santa Clara, California. Their hosting system is located on the Silicon Valley Power Grid, which is subject to less power outages and more reliable Internet connections.
Along with more dependable Internet connections, Go Au Pair’s core infrastructure has been upgraded to tier-1 carriers, or top-level network access with direct connections.
Finally, Go Au Pair also runs on 8X8’s ‘Zerigo Cloud.’ This particular cloud communication service is hosted on the East and West coasts; if one center were to go offline the other would pick up the slack.
“These faster virtual migrations of information are going to be great for Host Families,” said Kapler. “We are excited about our current database upgrade and are looking forward to more improvements and usability enhancement in the future.”
Go Au Pair is one of the original Au Pair Program sponsors designated by the department of State in 1989. There are Go Au Pair representatives in over 50 countries on six different continents and in more than 100 American cities. Their company headquarters is in Salt Lake City, Utah.
