The pricing you quote is for someone who is buying servers for their own
business' use (i.e. 'enterprises'), and includes support, knowledge base
access, alerts, etc., which is all part of a package called MySQL Network.
If you're an ISV/OEM that wants to include MySQL in your product, you
should contact sales@stripped, because the is dramatically different,
but is negotiated per-situation based on the pricing model and revenue
you'd be generating with your software.
