Correct, VMware vSphere DRS is only licensed in Enterprise and Enterprise Plus, it provides automatic vMotion, to ensure that virtual machines are receiving their memory and CPU entitlement, and then there is the Storage DRS, which you are referring to, and this is only licensed in Enterprise Plus.
