      First questions first:

      What type of servers do they have (you mention Ultra24s)?
      Is there a need to upgrade?
      Do they still have support contracts?

      And, yes, there is a special research&development pricelist, but, as others
      mentioned, it's best to ask an Oracle sales rep (or partner).
