We've been right here in the Belden Village area of Canton for over 23 years. If you'd like to see our in-house datacenter, give us a call or email, and we'll be happy to show you around.
We host many websites right here in our facility as well as co-located servers. Some are physical servers, although most have moved to our redundant cloud infrastructure.
Himebaugh Consulting is one of Canton's first website design and development companies, providing professional business websites and custom application development. We've been in business since 1993 doing website development - not many others have been around that long, if any.
What this means to you, the customer, is that you'll be putting your trust and investment into a company that has a local presence and is committed to the local community.
Another important difference between Himebaugh Consulting and other companies is that we've got our own datacenter to host your website or web application. It's not just a server in a closet, overburdened with hundreds of websites, all running slowly. In fact, ask us for a tour of our datacenter, and see where your website will be 'living' after it's developed.
No outsourcing here - we have a team of web developers experienced in many programming languages. The depth of experience and knowledge in a firm which develops websites is important - you won't be locked in to the 'specialty' that is the only skill a small shop may have.
To make an effective and fully functional business website, you need the right people behind it.
Websites for All Industries
Duncan Press needed to replace their aging website on a budget. This mid-size website shows off the prepress, press room and bindery capabilities and offers an FTP site for their customers.
This e-commerce website sells high-end contemporary lighting. It includes an administrative interface with a custom-developed import tool for manufacturer spreadsheets of product data including images. A successful SEO strategy has been in place for years.
This Cuyahoga Falls machine shop now has an engaging website featuring their CNC equipment and describing their capabilities – including parts for the Mars Exploration Rover Mission.
Custom Application Development
Himebaugh Consulting, Inc. offers custom application design and development for a range of platforms, architectures, technologies and devices. Often, the software that suits your specific needs simply isn't available in a package. When out-of-the-box software isn't sufficient or flexible enough for your business, we can custom-build to your specifications – efficiently – and deliver a solution that will save you time and money.
Why go custom?
- Custom web applications work exactly the way you want them to. While off-the-shelf software can achieve partly what you want to do, the modification and customization of these tools is usually time-consuming and costly.
- Custom web applications can be built around your existing systems, bridging the gap between the old and new, or between two systems that need to 'talk'.
- Correctly coded applications are flexible and scalable.
- Custom applications work well for intranets, inventory management, document management and workflow control.
- Our custom web applications are built using open source technologies such as PHP and MySQL, which help you achieve better results at a reasonable cost.
Don't be this guy.
Systems and Networking
Network Design and Setup
We provide complete network design and setup, handling everything from planning to hardware procurement to implementation. We can help you design a completely new infrastructure that will be able to grow with your business, or modify your existing network to better serve your current needs.
Server Deployment and Maintenance
The heart of your business applications is your server. If anything goes wrong with a server, your business can slow down to a crawl or even stop completely. Clearly, it is important to have servers that are efficient and reliable. We specialize in setting up servers in configurations that optimize their performance and minimize the risk of failure. With options such as RAID, clustering, offsite redundancy, and load balancing, we can ensure that your servers run efficiently and securely.
Increasingly, companies have been outsourcing many functions to reduce labor costs. Information technology (IT) outsourcing has allowed companies to quickly implement new technology and access talent for specialized areas such as disaster recovery, data storage and backup and application development.
In VMware’s own words, virtualization is the process of creating a software-based (or virtual) representation of something rather than a physical one. Virtualization can apply to applications, servers, storage, and networks and is the single most effective way to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility for all size businesses.
Secure Remote Access (VPN)
Virtual private networks (VPNs) are pipelines for securely connecting remote employees to central work servers via the Internet. Most companies maintain VPNs so that employees can access files, applications, printers, and other resources on the office network without compromising security.
We provide an array of network monitoring services. The available options include intrusion detection systems, packet-level analysis of your network traffic, and metered utilization of your network devices.
Backup and Disaster Recovery
Backup of vital company data is critical to a company's survival, no matter what size the company. Prepare for the unexpected, let Himebaugh Consulting work with you to form an effective recovery solution that is secure, reliable and tested.
