Vblock is priced at a premium because people don't want the headache of managing and deploying different products.The paid support for Vblock is expensive.I think the pricing is on the higher end of the spectrum. There could be some adjustments that could be made there. Regarding licensing, watch compatibility with external products that you run on Vblock. It has got to be properly architected, otherwise, you will run into licensing issues.
