Hello friends. We're looking to upgrade from ONTAP 9.1 to 9.3 pretty soon now.
Our current loadout of 9.1 + VSC 6.2 lets us do SMVI backup and restore natively to VSC and the VMWare web client.
Upgrading to 9.3 will require us to update VSC first to 7.1. The SMVI backup and restore capability is no longer with VSC, and has migrated to SnapCenter.
So far so good - we need to talk to the sales guys about SnapCenter licenses.
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.
So like ... does anyone know what application or plugin is now supporting SMVI for backup and restore for ONTAP 9.3 and VSC 7.1? What's the latest news on this?
