Latest Virtual Storage Console for VMware vSphere only supports up to vSphere 6.7
For a while now VMWare went to vSphere version 7. What is the ETA for a new version of Virtual Storage Console for VMware vSphere and a NetApp NFS Plug-in for VMware VAAI that supports vSphere 7 ?
In a demo pool I implemented a virtual storage console on a vSphere 7. The VASA (NetApp NFS Plug-in for VMware VAAI 1.1.2) provider is installed on the ESXi hosts but showing as not being capable of hardware acceleration in the vSphere 7 client. The option to Rapid clone is not available. The virtual storage console is available and shows information inside the vSphere 7 client but there isn't much to do. It lost alot of functionality compared to vSphere 6.7 environment.
I'm the product manager for our vSphere tools for ONTAP, and I am not aware of any plans to support rapid cloning. But we have been working on new SAN and NAS capabilities, some available now (NVMe/FC) and some coming soon! Also a number of different initiatives with vVols, including FCD and Tanzu support.
Update: One of my hosts spontaneously upgraded to 7.0U2 after I upgraded it to 7.0U1. I was never able to get VAAI 2.0 to install using VUM/vLCM on that host while it was at 7.0U2, although I will admit the server was considered suspect at that point. I wiped and reinstalled 7.0U1 and was then able to install VAAI 2.0 using vLCM as I've done on my other hosts.
