I never looked into Snap Creator too much, but it looks like it was originally a 7mode framework/software for developing your own data protection management:
I see references to Snap Creator in the context of ONTAP 9.x (cDOT) operations, so it looks like it's an on-going supported technology.
SnapCenter is the consolidated/unified console for managing/viewing/etc snapshots being orchestrated by various NetApp technologies. Here's the overview page from the documentation center:
A lot of what used to be individually managed/orchestrated from the various SnapManager for X products is getting integrated into SnapCenter (such as VSC 7.0 backup/restore). We (my shop) are definitely on the path to implement SnapCenter as part of our operation...
Hope that helps,
