Microsoft Virtual Machine Manager (VMM)

I am having some difficulty finding out if I can run VMM for 2012 R2 without having SCCM.....  Years ago I ran VMM 2008 stand alone without SCCM, but I cannot seem to find a definitive answer.....

All of the research I do points me back to an add-on module for SCCM, but I am not sure if that is just MS way of marketing to sell SCCM.....

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, you can just install SCVMM 2012 R2 without installing the full suite.

No mention on SCCM, which is a different product, included in the suite!
