Search performance matters and uptime matters. Our powerful search appliances can grind through hundreds of thousands of complex queries per second, and can index multiple terrabytes per node.

Additional application specific connectors allow you to quickly connect diverse data sources across the enterprise to build a single, central search solution that delivers on crawl performance, query performance and relevance.

SB-255 series appliances are built upon rock solid MaxxCAT search technology that has been delivering high quality results for billions of queries for more than a decade.

Extreme Performance

High Performance

The SB-series is the fastest entry-level appliance on the market, at 12,500 Queries per Minute (QPM).

The entry level appliance is a 1U form factor unit with 250GB of storage - more than than enough for a large website or small collection of local files.

  • Simple crawl configuration
  • Flexible data extraction rules and pathways
  • Open standard JSON output to easily integrate with applications

Low Cost

Starting at $3,495, the SB-series offers one of the most affordable points of entry to the search appliance market.

By bundling the hardware, software and support into a single 1U form factor rack unit, startup is cost effective too. Simply plug in and, with our streamlined Quick Start feature, you can begin crawling your site in moments.


Because the MaxxCAT search appliances are scalable, customers can begin with an SB-255, and as their future needs require, can preserve their investment with a straightforward upgrade path into larger machines.

All data, customizations, and configurations are fully compatible across the MaxxCAT product line. And because of the unrestricted license, all MaxxCAT enterprise search appliances can index content from multiple sources, and there is no artificial expiration of the license or artificially imposed document limit.
