Press Release

SearchBlox is fast to deploy, easy to manage and available for both on-premise and cloud deployment. SearchBlox provides developers with a powerful search platform for developing and deploying search applications, without having in-depth knowledge of Apache Lucene. As SearchBlox is a full product with integrated crawlers and web-based index/collection management, developers will save considerable time and effort by using SearchBlox compared to building a search application from scratch using Apache Lucene.


  • Built on Apache Lucene
    SearchBlox is built on Apache Lucene – the leading open source search library. Search indexes built using SearchBlox adhere to open standards and offer greater flexibility compared to closed proprietary platforms.
  • Integrated Crawlers
    SearchBlox provides crawlers for Filesystems, HTTP/HTTPS and RSS Feeds that work out-of-the-box. The HTTP/HTTPS crawler can index both public and protected content.
  • Multi-lingual Support
    SearchBlox can index content in 37 languages including European and Asian languages. Stopwords and stemming are also supported for the different languages.
  • On-premise or Cloud Deployment
    SearchBlox is packaged for fast deployment to Windows, Linux and Mac OS X operating systems. In addition, it is also available for deployment on Amazon Web Services Platform (AWS) and Rackspace.
  • Simple Setup
    SearchBlox is managed entirely through web-based Admin Console. Document collections can be configured and indexed in a matter of minutes. SearchBlox supports scheduled operations such as indexing, which greatly reduces administrative overheads for such repetitive tasks.
  • Enterprise Support
    SearchBlox offers a choice of support options backed by Service Level Agreements (SLA) to suit client requirements. SearchBlox has a strong track record of providing support to over 300 customers in 30 countries over the last 7 years.
