Admin folks maintaining virtualized infrastructures in small shops are usually having other hats within the company. I know few shops where the admin is also accountant or electrician…. you know. Not a VCA, VCP or VCAP…. So in those cases if you have a problem, believe me, it is good to have a VMware support.
Know that VMware support can be also bought “per-incident” it means that you buy tickets ahead and consume them as you go….
