Launching an AMI in AWS

Is launching an EC2 instance different than that of launching an AMI? What is the difference? Can someone guide me through the process of doing this? Thank you in advance.

Both the process of creating an EC2 instance and launching an AMI are same. In both the process you create an Instance.

EC2 Instance is where you select the already created AMI these are by default provided by Amazon.

AMI can be your manually created machines or AMI created from snapshot for recovery.

Both the process are same.

For creating and launching EC2 Instance take a look at Step 1.

For launching an AMI take a look at Step 5 in the article mentioned below.

Restore EC2 From Snapshot.
