Nagios: http://www.nagios.org/

It's free, and it works like a charm.

I'm with woolmilkporc.  The best "free" monitoring tool is Nagios.  It has a bit of a learning curve, if you've never used it, but it's very good.  If you have a budget that you can use, I'd suggest getting SolarWinds Orion (obviously not free).

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Personally I always find it odd when I see posts that talk about "Data Center" in one sentance and then "FREE" in another.

If you are running a data center and you want it protected then you want a product that is supported surely? (Commercially)

We use PRTG with an unlimited sensor license and monitor everything that you could humanly wish to monitor. I get email alerts, text alerts, I get services started on one system when a service dies on another system, I get everything I want basically AND If im not sure what to do to get what I want, I pick up the phone and two mins later its done.

Our data centers are our life line and at the end of the day the smooth running data center keeps me in a job.

Going to the CEO and explaining that I didnt know how to monitor such and such so didnt get any alerts is not an option. Is it for you?

+1 for PRTG

@Neilsr: You never saw Nagios, did you?

The fact that a software is "Open Source" doesn't imply that you can't get (paid) support for it.
