Monitoring Tools

We are looking for a database, virtualization, and network monitoring tool that can be used in a hybrid cloud / physical environment.  Can you please recommend a tool that is simple to configure, is cost effective, and reliable?  We currently use vFgolight and have looked a Solarwinds.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I dont know about foglight as I have no experience with it, but can talk wonders about solarwinds solution (virutalization manager) compared vs QUEST/DELL vkernel
we used other solarwinds products for some network tasks, and its the same thing, really easy to use, and install , only had one issue once and their support proved to be really helpfull for us once we couldn't find the solution using the community portal.
oh btw we use it in combination with SCOM, for when we need most granular analisis, but since SCOM interface seems really really bad to us, we use a solarwind scom plugin , but scom as a standalone is horrible.
