MSM and Aruba - compatible?

Hi, we currently have an HP MSM environment (MSM760 controller, MSM460 and other APs). Now a vendor says that 'MSM460 is no longer available, you must purchase Aruba 210 which is the follow-up model'. But are these Aruba APs really working with the MSM controller? (I doubt this.) Do we need to replace the controller, or the whole infrastructure, or will MSM APs be available for years to come?

This should be a frequently asked question but I could not find an answer anywhere.

Aruba IAP will not work with MSM controller.

Aruba has the concept of "Controllerless", where it is eliminated the concept of using a physical controller for management.

We were told that MSM 460 is "supposed" to be available until 10/2016 and is currently available from commercial distribution (Tech Data, Synnex).  Likelihood after that is that you may upgrade by zones, with an area of MSM and an area of Aruba.
