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.
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.
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.
