Beautiful and clean interface like nothing else and with merlin you can pretty much scale it anyway you want. (And I am NOT affiliated with op5 in any way - just love the product and what I can do with it).
Yes, it has a price tag - but so does XI and a lot of other solutions.
You get what you pay for - less problems.
if it's about the money - get opsview.

for my personal enjoyment in both development and deployment for free - icinga.

for future performance pleasure - shinken.

I am with Cooper Bussmann Wireless and we researched several tools to find the best product in the market that can be used as the basis for our new Network Management System. We needed a tool that can easily be expanded to incorporate wireless services as well. Nagios stood apart from anything we found. It's flexibility to create and add new plugins, its scalability, robustness, large feature set and full control over its web application. On top of that it has a very agile User Group and Support Group. We are very pleased with the Nagios XI product.

Nagios Definitely. If you have the will and the intellect, Nagios even kicks the @!$#%@# out of Kaseya!...and I have used both. Nagios is by far more Robust.
