Operations Manager is priced at $50 per VM.

What you need to remember is most performance management software uses vCenter Server for metrics, therefore ALL the data is currently available to you from vCenter, its just the method of presentation.

Never heard of it, plenty of other free products, I have heard of for free, Veeam Monitor!

I already looked at Veeam and the pay for version is priced per socket for each ESX host which get very pricey for us.

what about the FREE version?

what you have to remember is Operation Manager will pay for itself, when you see how much you have overcommitted resources!

and therefore there is no requirement to purchase new host servers.

Looks very similar to Operations Manager, unlikely to be free, considering the enterprises that are using it, I would think more expensive than Operations Manager Standard.
