This are the great news:

I am sorry for the delay I was looking for some information on IRIX in
order to evaluate the work required.
In general, the stack controller drivers (UHCI\OHCI\EHCI), stack core
Mass Storage and HID class drivers can be licensed at $30,000. In
NRE development will required to integrate the stack into IRIX OS. This
will include the implementation of the Host Abstraction Layer and
integration of the Mass Storage Class Driver with the IRIX File
will need to review the work required in order to give a precise price
but from my preliminary investigation I can estimate that we will
require around 2 month of development.
Jungo's NRE fee is a constant $20,000 per month. As I do not see any
of re-selling the IRIX stack in the future Jungo will not be able to
subsidize the NRE development based on future revenues.
Please let me know if you have the resources to justify this
...And the bad news are that we'll need at least U$D70,000.-
