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.
