i'm very sorry for the confusion here. I'm the TME for not just VSC but also the VMWare plug-in for SnapCenter. this quote bothers me as its an incorrect statement "And then I hear word that SnapCenter is No Longer A Thing, and stopped being offered a couple weeks back. The sales guys can't offer us a quote on it." As long as you have a premium bundle applied to your controller(s) SnapCenter is free to use. we have a great migration tool that will make the migration super easy from SMVI backups to SnapCenter based ones. I'd love to have an opportunity to have a webex call with you.
