I can NOT purchase SCCM or SCOM individually from System Center ?

Trying to gather info for a proposal and need your help to clarify the info on a datasheet on this MS web site:

A Q&A on that datasheet says:
Q: Can I purchase each of the System Center 2012 R2 Server Management License components separately?
A: No. The System Center 2012 R2 Server Management components are part of an integrated offering to create and manage private cloud environments and are available only as part of System Center 2012 R2 Standard and System Center Datacenter MLs.

Does it mean there is no way to purchase the individual Operation Manager or Configuration Manager ?? What I need is SCCM and SCOM. Where to buy? Please help.

Have you looked at SCE 2010
This is good for SMB types of infrastructures.

Basically giving you what you need in a nice tidy package.


I have SCCM 2007, but was putting together a POC with SCE 2007 and looking at this now I know for a fact that I could have gotten everything out of SCE 2007 that I am getting from SCCM 2007 plus I would of had the other light versions of SCSM and SCOM.

How many machines are you looking to manage with SCCM and SCOM?

System Center is a complete product you cannot purchase items individually like before. It is either you buy everything or nothing.
