There are a lot of alternatives of database services for developers. You can use Amazon RDS if you want to avoid database administrative work but want to run a fully featured relational database. As for AMIs on Amazon EC2, they allow you to manage your own relational database in the cloud. Well, this is the most basic difference between these alternatives. 

Hope this answered your question!
