"MuleSourceâs support and services will start at $12,000 per server, which
Rosenberg claimed is around 10 percent of what proprietary vendors such as
BEA, IBM ..."

That isn't true, I pay much less than $12000pa for full hardware 4 hour
response support on my HPs.

But still, MuleSource seems to be aiming for the big work horse database
servers so you could understand them being a little over zealous in
priceing because they are very likely going to need highly skilled
UNIX/Linux staff, database developers to aid and plan migrations, plus very
likely a high insurance premium (in case one of their people leans on the
customers one button recovery button while last years tape is in the slot).
