Earlier I tried to pass the exam VMCE and view next question around editions and license files question for Storage Snapshots.

[REDACTED] Removed the exam question and answer options

When I read textbook VMCEv.9 on p.189 I view two columns for (Hyper-V and VMware), but the license for Hyper-V and VMware same

Storage Snapshot functionality is available only for vSphere deployments. Cannot comment on an exam text, but we've reached already a person who can do that. Let's wait till he chimes in. Thanks.

I agree that this question should be rephrased, since technically Hyper-V is using volume snapshots (similar concept as storage snapshots) today. Might be a bit confusing.

Legal disclaimer: The NDA you signed digitally before starting the VMCE exam at Pearson VUE, prohibits you from discussing any part of the VMCE exam contents. Pending further review, this exact exam question is now disabled.

As it was stated above, the specific feature "Backup from Storage Snapshots" is only available for VMware as per
The license for Hyper-V and vSphere are indeed not the same. If you purchased a license to protect a Hyper-V environment and decide to replace everything with vSphere, you would have to obtain a new .lic file, that instead of Hyper-V licenses includes vSphere licenses.
