Wondering whether anyone could advise as to the differences between these two products, from my understanding the difference is the latter allows control of more than 3 hosts. What I really wanted to know was, the (cool) features like chargeback and extended Application monitoring are they included in both versions or am I missing something....

Foundation has all of the features of regular VC but is limited to 3 host, that's all.

Chargeback and AppSpeed are separate products that are chargable whichever VC version you have.
