I saw that the new version of VMware vSphere 7 update 3 natively supported NVMe over TCP.
Is it compatible with Starwind NVMe-of initiator?

if so, how does it work? and does classic iSCSI still work?

I have 2 windows 2016 servers with starwind VSAN in iSCSI for ESXi servers in version 6.7 and 7

thank you

Thank you for your question. Classic iSCSI still works.
StarWind NVMe-oF Initiator is available only for Windows. Furthermore, it is still an experimental solution.
