Looking for Comparison between dfm 4.x and dfm 5.0/5.1

What are the benefits and or new features of one versus the other?  What about limitations?

Re: Looking for Comparison between dfm 4.x and dfm 5.0/5.1

Major differences:

1. VIM - Virtual Infrastructure management (VMware) - in 5.0 and 5.1 (7-mode) you can manage VMware infrastructure. [This is not present in DFM 4.x]

2. You have a unified GUI called NSPOG [Not present in 4.x]

Thanks,
