"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.

You get what you pay for. It'll either be harder to manage or of poorer quality. Look at packages like spiceworks or nagios.

Philip ElderTechnical Architect - HA/Compute/StorageCommented:
Realistically, once the VMs are set up and are using static VHDX files there is very little to monitor short of a full-stop of the server itself. But, that would become readily apparent.

Server manufacturers have utilities and agents to monitor sensors and the like with the ability to fire an e-mail if a sensor shows a problem. Dell's Open Manage for example or Intel's RMM.
