[VoiceOps] Metaswitch VP3510 Options?

For those of you that have had Metaswitch VP3510s and migrated to something else, what did you do and why? I've known for about a year that some day I'd have to make that decision, but it appears that day has come more rapidly than I expected. We have an (R)SP4200 that has failed (waiting on support to determine which one or both). Maybe it's a better spend to just move off of that platform. 

Option 1: Replace the RSP4200\SP4200 for up to about $16k and be in the same boat I was a month ago. 
Option 2: My soft-idea after a conversation with my Metaswitch sales rep was to move all of the TDM aspects to a UMG and move all of the CFS and other aspects into Dell servers. 

While I love virtualization and have been virtualizing workloads for 15 years, Metaswitch only support vSphere and OpenStack. OpenStack is too cumbersome for our size and the vSphere licensing costs more than the servers it would run on. That point is even further underlined by the fact that Perimeta would require Enterprise Plus licenses. My thought was to just buy some more servers and just run the software right on the box. The last batch of Dell R630s we got were only about $2k/each all-in. Cheap enough to have cold spares, racked and waiting. 

We'd likely just leave MetaView and Perimeta where they are (6010s) until we had EOL concerns there. 

I am working with Metaswitch, both support and sales as far as my options through them. 
I've also set up a meeting with a Metaswitch consultant to run through our options. 

More good data, the better.
