vCenter Oprerations vs vRealize

We currently own a none-expiring vCenter Operations Manager Standard 5.6 license for unlimited VMS. Some guy at VMware reached out to us and is telling us we need to buy vRealize in packs now and that we are out of compliance? Why cant I just stay with my current product? Whats going on?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

vCenter Operations Management Suite has morphed into VMware vRealize Operations.

VMware vRealize Operations. is now end of life, and there is no support for the product now, support ended in 2015.

see here

If you have Support and Subscription, you can upgrade your licenses which are now in 25 VM pack bundles.

But if you have no support, you licenses are perpetual, and will keep functioning.

If you purchase new, you will need to purchase 25 pack bundles.
