Hi John et al,
I am presuming development has stopped on FVS since last release (7.0) in March 2013?
Few months ago, Dell provided an official statement regarding supporting FVS and the long term plan.
Dell is committed to supporting Foglight for Virtualization, Standard Edition (vKernel) by keeping the existing product functionality current with respect to hypervisor support and defect fixes. Our longer term strategy is to deliver a new, more robust and scalable platform for Standard Edition that will be built on the award winning Foglight platform. We have already taken popular Standard Edition features like optimizer and change analyzer and brought them to the Foglight platform with even greater functionality. In addition, we will soon deliver enhanced capacity planning functionality built on the core Standard Edition / vKernel functionality. When the core functionality of Standard Edition is fully available on the Foglight platform, Dell will offer a migration plan to the next generation Standard Edition.
I hope this helps,
