VMware has a tool called Hyperic. This will let you install agents on the AWS servers and then you can get all their data to a centralized server. Does not matter where the servers are as far as they can talk to the centralized Hyperic server.

There are many more tools which can do the same.

You can monitor your Amazon EC2 instances using Amazon CloudWatch, which collects and processes raw data from Amazon EC2 into readable, near real-time metrics. You can use the Amazon CloudWatch console, the mon-list-metrics command, or the ListMetrics API to view the metrics that Amazon EC2 sends to CloudWatch.
