I’m running PC Scaleout (220.127.116.11) on ESXi and need to migrate all 3 nodes to a new datacenter cluster and datastore (same vcenter). Is there a recommended process for this or can I simply power down one of the 3 nodes, migrate it, power it up and wait for all cluster services to start, and then move on to the next one?

I would suggest you to wait for migrating the Prism Central. Using Data Protection is not a supported method currently to migrate Prism Central VM(s). The main thing to be concerned about is if the IP address will be different for the VM in the new cluster.
We have a supported way of doing this coming up in AOS 5.17.1 and it basically works like HA. Power off the Prism Central VM(s) on source cluster and create them on the destination cluster.
If it is possible to wait until then, I would suggest going via that route.
Also, you would have to open a support ticket for it as it’s planned to be in an internal KB (for now).
