Server availability monitoring software for Windows 2008 server RAM, CPU, Disk and Exchange email, Internet WAN and Oracle database availability?

We are looking for availability monitoring software. Are there any for monitoring critical services consisting of
- Windows file server
- Oracle database apps
- web server
- Internet access
- Exchange email
- Financial market link routers (Cisco 1800 routers) e.g. Bloomberg, Reuters etc
- SFTP servers
- able to monitor server health like RAM, CPU, HDD would be good. And also ability tp email and SMS.

I was thinking the likes of What's Up Gold, but not sure if there are any good alternatives available. Thanks

ive used monitis for a while now on server 2008. its a bit clunky to get going but works fine once its up and running.

you can monitor running processes/services and check cpu usage and RAM and check ping to a website from germany the UK and the US. and you only pay for the number of monitors you use.

i.e for one server this will cost you in the region of £10-£15 per month or less thats with around 12 different monitors on the server checking everything.

you may use nagios. Nagios can check availability of tcp ports. You may send string and wait answer.
